I'm back with another bowl of winter delight; it is none other than my favorite badam kheer. Kheer is a traditional Indian dessert recipe, which is nothing but a sweetened milk pudding. This milk-based dessert is insanely delicious. Besides, it is super easy to make and a must-try delicacy at home.

Badam kheer is an almond milk pudding made from blanched almond paste, full-cream milk, sugar, saffron, nuts, and cardamom powder. Kheer has a rich and creamy texture. You can even add khoya or condensed milk to make it richer in taste. Also, saffron yields a beautiful golden hue and a pleasant aroma to the kheer.

Badam Payasam is usually devoured as an after-meal dessert. It can be consumed warm or cold and is mainly prepared during Indian festivals like Diwali Holi and served at wedding receptions & special occasions.

Badam denotes almonds in Hindi, and Payasam is a Tamil word for kheer; it is also called kheeri, payesh, payasa, phirni in different Indian languages. Moreover, the badam kheer cooking procedure is similar to the traditional badam milk.

Kheer is a classic and versatile recipe. Infact, kheer can be made from dry fruit paste like almonds, vegetables, fruits, rice, vermicelli, semolina, flattened rice, sago, etc. The ingredients are easily modified; however, the milk and sugar are crucial in all kheer varieties.

For a vegan badam kheer recipe, milk is replaced with plant-based milk. Almond kheer can be freshly made or with store-bought instant badam mix, but homemade kheer is healthy free of preservative and artificial colors.

Badam kheer is high in protein fiber and rich in nutrition. You may replace white sugar with low glycemic sugar to make it healthy, but the flavor may differ.

Notes:

1. You can store the badam Kheer in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Chilled kheer tastes best.
2. Do not use almond skin as it changes the color and texture of the kheer.
3. You can add condensed milk or khoya to the kheer for a richer taste.
4. Make sure you stir the kheer often as it may stick to the bottom of the pan.
5. You may skip the saffron/kesar if it is not accessible.
6. Kheer gets thickened once chilled, so you can add more milk and sugar while serving.
7. Serve the kheer with chopped almonds, pistachios, and raisins.

How to make badam kheer with step by step photos:


1. Firstly, soak 100 grams of raw almonds in water overnight or soak them in hot water for 1 hour.

2. Secondly, peel the almond skin. And blend the almonds with 200ml of milk in a mixie jar to make a coarse paste.

7. Add the almond paste to the pan. Stir it constantly to avoid burning on the bottom of a pan.


8. Let the kheer thickens over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. I prefer a semi-thick consistency. Note - Kheer will also thicken a bit once it is cooled.
