Almond Kheer

Let me start my first post in 2010 with a sweet dish. Badam Kheer is a delicious Indian dessert prepared with almonds. If this kheer is prepared in the manner as I have mentioned below, it can be stored even for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. If you are planning for some party, you can prepare this in advance and refrigerate it. Badam kheer can be served either hot or cold though tastes awesome when cold. It is very simple to prepare but tastes royal. Today we will learn how to make Badam Kheer/ Almond Kheer following this easy recipe.

  17. Hello. Thank you for this recipe. I, too, have a question about what the final consistency should be-- mine came out liquid like still, so tasted more like badsm milk than kheer. Any tips? Thank you!

    1. You must use full fat milk for it to be rich and creamy.Also you have to reduce the milk.

  18. Yummy😍😍😍😍 is saffron optional or we need to add

  19. Hi, this is a question related to general health and not this recipe in particular. I couldn't find an appropriate place to post it hence posting here. Since your healthy lifestyle is reflected in your blog I felt you are a person capable of clearing my doubt. What is the best way to eat almonds to gain Maximum nutrients? Should the peel be removed after soaking or not?

  20. I personally soak it overnight, change the water once or twice, peel off the skin in the morning and eat it. I also grind it with dates and use it instead of sugar to sweeten my milk and smoothies. The best way is to soak overnight, peel the skin of almonds before eating.
