Fresh Ginger Milk
A must during the winter months throughout the UAE. A favourite amongst the Arab men in the rural and remote areas, as well as the most modern home today. Usually made just after sunset in the winter months, it is kept warm in a thermos flask until consumed.
5 cups fresh milk
2 tbs sugar-and extra when serving, if needed
1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger or a bit less if you dont like it to "spicy hot"(finely grated)
Place the ginger and sugar into a pot, stir for a bit over heat and then pour milk onto it. Slowly bring to the boil to prevent burning. Once it has reached the boiling stage, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a thermos until ready to serve.
