A RECIPE + SPICES TO CREATE
Hot Chocolate Infused with Cardamom and Rose
5 MINS
|
6 oz
ingredients
¾ CUP milk
4 green cardamom pods, whole, lightly crushed
2 TBSP condensed milk
2 TBSP dark chocolate, chopped or shaved
1 TBSP cacao powder
1 TBSP rosewater
PINCH rose petals, for garnish
____________________
optional:
PINCH fennel seeds, whole, lightly crushed
directions
Combine the milk and lightly crushed cardamom pods in a small saucepan, then warm gently over medium-low heat. When the milk begins to steam, scoop out the cardamom pods with a slotted spoon. Immediately stir in the chocolate, condensed milk, and cacao powder.*

Whisk the mixture until the chocolate and cacao powders are fully incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in the rosewater. Pour into a mug and top with a sprinkle of rose petals.

*INGREDIENT NOTE: If substituting in cocoa for cacao powder in this recipe, be sure the cocoa has no additional ingredients and is unsweetened for best results.
tips
The use of rose petals as garnish makes a lovely (and traditional) presentation.

To add a hint of licorice, try adding a few crushed fennel seeds with the cardamom.

Be sure to use rosewater labeled “food grade,” which can be found in health food stores and in some supermarkets in the international foods isle.
