Badam Kheer

Rich and creamy pudding prepared using milk, almonds, sugar, and cardamom is the Badam Kheer. Generally, kheer is a combination of rice, milk, and sugar. However, in the case of badam kheer, rice is replaced with almond paste, making it richer and giving us a break from the regular kheer. Certain recipes using ingredients like mawa/khoya and condensed milk to give some volume to the kheer, but without any of these too, the kheer tastes great. Instead of using these ingredients, the milk is simmered till it thickens or condenses. The kheer is flavored with cardamom, which very well compliments the taste of the badam kheer. It can be served as a dessert or can be prepared for any festivals or parties. Badam kheer can be served warm or chilled or even at room temperature.

Ingredients for Badam Kheer:

Almonds: There is a lot of variety of almonds available. I have used the California almonds to make the badam kheer. You may use any variety, however, make sure that the almonds ain’t bitter. At times the almonds are bitter and they spoil the taste of the dessert. The almonds should be soaked and peeled and used for the recipe. Not just for this recipe, to get the maximum benefits of almonds, it is important to soak them. Generally, a smooth paste of the soaked and peeled almonds is prepared. However, I like to divide the almonds into 2/3 and 1/3, making a paste of 2/3 of the almonds and just chopping the remaining 1/3. This gives a bite to the kheer. However, if you wish, you can make a paste of all the almonds.

Milk: Full-fat milk works great for this kheer recipe, more than any other kheer recipe. Since almonds are the hero of this kheer, to give it proper texture, it is important that full-fat milk is used.

Sugar: I like my desserts quite sweet. You can adjust the quantity of sugar as per your liking.
Flavoring: I have flavored the badam kheer with some cardamom. You can also add in saffron, pista, etc. I also love to add a little coconut to my kheer.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
