1 cup water
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 cup whole milk
1 Tablespoon honey
In a medium pot over medium heat, boil water.
When the water has boiled, add ginger and cook for one minute. Cooking ginger in water will ensure that milk is not curdled.
Add turmeric, and grated nutmeg, and mix. Make sure there are no lumps.
Add milk and bring the mixture to a boil.
Remove from heat and stir in honey. We never boil honey as it can turn bad once cooked.
Strain in two cups and serve warm.
