Badam Kheer

Badam kheer is a very popular recipe. It has a creamy flavor of almond, color of saffron and aromatic smell of cardamom. Iam a die hard fan for any cold beverage combined with milk :). I was craving to have this kheer for a long time and I think that only pushed me to make this wonderful dessert. I like my kheer to be prepared one day before and served the next day, it gives an awesome taste. Here you go with the recipe.

                            


Ingredients

  • Almonds - 1 cup
  • Milk - 5 cups 
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Saffron - few 
  • Pistachio (chopped)(optional) - 2tbsp 
  • Cardamom - 1
  • Ghee - 2tsp 

Preparation 

  • Take 3-4 tsp of milk and warm it in microwave for about 30 seconds, to that add saffron and leave it for few minutes.
  • Boil water and then add almonds to it. Soak it for half an hour, then peel off the skin from all the almonds. Reserve 6-7 almonds and cut them into thin strips for later use.
  • Grind rest of the almonds with little milk to a smooth paste. Keep aside.

Method

  • Boil the remaining milk in a pan on low flame.
  • When milk starts to boil add the almond paste, soaked saffron and sugar. Mix well. 
                              

  • Keep stirring now and then to avoid burning. Boil the milk until desired consistency. It takes about 10 minutes on medium flame. 
  • Fry the sliced almonds in ghee for few minutes on medium flame, without getting burnt. 
  • Now add cardamom, fried almond to the kheer. 
  • Allow the kheer to boil for few minutes. Switch off the flame. 
  • Leave the kheer to cool down. Then refrigerate for 10 hours for best result.
  • Garnish the kheer with thinly sliced almonds and saffron. It will be great in taste. 
                             

Tips 

  • Adding pistachio is optional.
  • Serve the next day preferably. 
  • Adjust sugar and add as per your taste.
