Badam/Almond Kheer

Badam kheer is a rich and elegant drink/dessert which is so easy to make. I have always had the MTR badam drinks, and have never ventured into trying my own version. You could adjust the amount of sweetness as per your taste when you make it yourself. It is a healthy drink as well with all the protein and good fat from the almonds and the calcium from the milk. You could use any type of milk -full-fat,2%fat or fat free. If you are planning to make a rich dessert - evaporated milk would be the optimal choice! Forget the calories!!

Ingredients (Makes two tall glasses)
Almonds - 1 cup
Milk - 2.5 - 3 cups
Sugar - 3 tablespoons
Saffron - 1 pinch (optional)

Directions
Soak the almonds in some hot water for about 15 minutes and peel the skin.
In a blender/mixer, grind the almonds along with the sugar and milk.
Simmer in low heat for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Garnish with the saffron threads.
Serve hot/cold.

This can be served chill on a hot day and hence am sending this to Col-summer challenge and Twenty-20 event.

  29. Looks Awesome Divya - reminds me of the badam kheer that we get in weddings in India - they do add some kind of seeds to that which makes it crunchy - do you know what those are?
