How to make Badam Kheer - Diwali Special Recipe
soaking, blanching and peeling almonds
  1. Rinse ¼ cup almonds (about 35 almonds) and add them in a bowl. Then pour ⅓ cup hot boiling water. Cover and keep aside for 30 to 40 minutes.

  2. Peel the almonds. You just need to press the skin and it comes out easily.

  3. Take 3 to 4 of blanched almonds and slice them thinly.

  4. Add the remaining almonds in a grinder jar. Next add ¼ to ⅓ cup milk. Milk can be chilled or at room temperature.

  5. Next add 5 tablespoons of sugar or add as required. For a less sweet taste, you can add 4 tablespoons of sugar.

  6. Next add seeds from 4 green cardamoms.

  7. Grind till smooth. The almonds should be ground very well to a smooth consistency. If there are coarse particles or chunks, then it can be irritating to the throat.

  8. Take 2.5 cups milk in a pan. Make sure that the pan is large enough so that the milk does not spill out while boiling.

  9. Keep the pan on a low flame and begin to heat milk till it comes to a boil. Stir at intervals so that the milk does not scorch from the bottom.

  10. Add 10 to 12 saffron strands.

  11. Simmer on low flame for 3 to 4 minutes. Do stir at intervals.

  12. Then add the almond paste.

  13. Mix very well with a spoon.

  14. Let the entire almond kheer come to a boil.

  15. Then switch off the flame. Scrape the evaporated and dried milk at the sides of the pan and add them in the badam kheer.
