Badam kheer is a milk based dessert where ground almonds are cooked in milk and sugar and flavoured with saffron and cardamom powder. Its not-so-creamy texture, mild nutty flavor of almonds, aromatic rich flavor of saffron and cardamom make it a delicious sweet drink after a dinner party or a spicy meal.

  2. Milk- 1 litre
  3. Water- 1/4 cup

  5. cardamom (green)- 1/2 teaspoon
  6. Saffron- 10-15 saffron strands soaked in warm milk

3. Make a paste of almonds.

4. Take milk and water in a thick bottom vessel.

5. Bring it to boil.

6. Take another thick bottom vessel and put ghee in it.

7. Fry the badam paste lightly. It should not turn to brown color.
