Badam/Almond Kheer



Since this is my 100th post :) so I wanted to post something sweet. I had heard about Badam/almond kheer from one of my friend but don't know why I never tried. Since this post is special so I thought Badam Kheer would be good choice. This is very rich and inviting dessert which can be prepared with less effort.

RECIPE:

Cooking Time: 15-20 mins
Preparation Time: 5- 10 mins

Ingredients:

Badam/Almond: 25 pcs
Milk: 2 cup
Sugar: 1/4 cup
Saffron: few strands
Cardamom pwd: 1/3 tsp

Method:



  • Soak badam in hot water for 30 mins and then peal off the skin .Grind the badam with 1-2 tsp of milk to a fine paste and keep aside.


  • Soak saffron in warm milk and keep aside. Boil the milk in a pan,add sugar and simmer till milk becomes slightly thicker.
  • Add the saffron milk and mix well.


  • Then add the badam paste. Allow it to boil for about 5 mins.By this time the mixture starts getting thicker. Add cardamom powder, mix well and switch off.
  • Garnish with chopped almonds and Serve hot or cold. 


Notes:

  • It thickens with time, so switch off when its slightly thicker.
  • If wants kheer to be more liquid then add more milk and adjust sugar.
  • Can add condensed milk also.
