Badam Paal Recipe-Almond Flavored Milk-How to make Badam Pal

Badam milk or almond flavored milk is a very delicious and healthy drink. It can be enjoyed either hot or cold. I do not like the instant badam mix we get in shops as it is loaded with sugar. When making it at home, we can prepare it to suit our taste. Today we will learn how to make badam pal/badam milk following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
