Badam ki Kheer | Almond Milk Pudding

Diwali Greetings to all my readers!! I have been wondering for some time what sweet I should make to mark this festival and I realized that it has been some time since I made Kheer!! Badam Kheer or Almond Milk Pudding is one of my favourite Kheer recipes. The Kheer has a deliciously soft grainy texture, is fragrant with cardamom and saffron, and if you pay close attention gives a hint of heady almond towards the end.  Here is the delicious milk pudding recipe.

2 cups whole milk
2 cups evaporated milk
3/4 cup almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
Large pinch saffron

  1. Soak the almonds overnight in plenty of water.
  2. Next morning, drain the water and peel the almonds.
  3. Grind the almonds to a coarse paste. Set aside.
  4. Take a quarter cup of milk and put the saffron in it. Set aside.
  5. Place the remaining milk and the evaporated milk in a large saucepan.
  6. Bring to a boil, then continue boiling for about 10 minutes. Stir continuously.
  7. Reduce the heat, add the almonds and cardamom to the milk.
  8. Continue cooking stirring occasionally for another 25 minutes or until the pudding begins to thicken.
  9. Pour in the sugar, saffron and milk. Stir and cook for another five minutes.
  10. Turn off the heat, remove the kheer into a heat proof bowl.
  11. Cover and allow to cool completely.
  12. Refrigerate. Enjoy chilled.
Good to Know:
  • Badam Kheer tastes divine chilled. If however you like your puddings warm like me then warm the Kheer in the microwave before enjoying.
  • I don't like my sweets too sweet so I put only a half cup sugar. Add another quarter cup if you sport a sweet tooth.
