Badam Kheer is a delicious Indian dessert where milk is cooked with almond paste and saffron. Make it for festivities ot for your house party, it will please everyone. Here is how to make Badam Kheer at home.
Badam Kheer is that one dessert which I can relish any time, anywhere! I quickly make this creamy dessert for festivals, get-togethers or even when I crave for something sweet after dinner.
Making it saves me a lot of time especially when I have no particular dessert planned for an occasion. All you need is a pack of almonds, milk, saffron, cardamom powder and sugar. Like some of the other authentic recipes like Aam Panna, Badam ki Kheer happens to be my mother’s signature dish.
I remember, during my birthday, every year, mom and nani made sure to prepare Badam Kheer for me along with the cake. Following the same tradition, I make it for my kid as well on his birthday.
Almonds and milk grant this dessert a creamy texture and a refined flavor. Along with them, saffron and cardamom are also added so that this dessert gets a distinct aroma and color.
Personally, I love savoring a chilled bowl of Badam Kheer, however, some of my relatives don’t mind eating it even when it is served hot! Suit the tastes of your guests and serve them luscious Badam ki Kheer the way they like!
