Kalathi Kadai Rose Milk

Rose Milk

I wasn't sure where we were headed to when we parked our car near the temple street in Mylapore but I was sure I wouldn't leave the place without tasting 'The' Rose milk from Kalathi Kadai.Having heard so many rave reviews about this pink glass of beauty,I had to try it,no matter what.We are not very familiar with Mylapore and surroundings and hence finding out where the shop was,with only the name for company was not a simple task.

With my limited knowledge of reading Tamil,I found out the shop somehow but was baffled because the shop looked like a very simple corner shop where people stopped for a puff or a snack.There was no mention of Rose milk anywhere.Hesitantly we asked the guy for 2 glasses of Rose milk and he quickly pulled out his big steel jug and poured out two chilled glasses.I couldn't wait and gulped it down at one go.

With just a hint of rose flavor and mildly sweet,this one was a drink I wouldn't mind travelling a few kilometres for.I got myself a bottle of rose milk concentrate so that I could make it at home too.Here,I am giving a recipe using this concentrate.There are different varieties available but by far the closest I've felt to the original is the Bakers Rose Milk Powder.You could try making the same with that too.
