    Haleeb ma hal ~ Milk with cardamom

    Cardamom helps the digestive system and is a spice greatly relied on in this country. Boiled with milk, cardamom helps to relax the body and is thought to calm the stomach, thus offering a good night's rest. Generally this drink is served hot in large English teacups or small coffee cups.

    6 cups fresh milk
    sugar to taste
    1 teaspoon ground cardamom

    Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a rapid boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one or two minutes. Remove from heat, transfer to a vacuum flask and keep warm until ready to drink.
