1/4 cup Almonds, soaked overnight and peeled
1 tbsp Cashews, soaked overnight
1/2 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (Milkmaid/Mithai Mate)
4-5 cups Milk (I used a litre)
1 tbsp Clarified Butter (Ghee)
2 tsp Raisins
2 tsp Cashews
a pinch Saffron, dissolved in some milk
To garnish (Optional):
A few saffron strands
Bring the milk to a boil in a large vessel and add the condensed milk to it. Keep stirring until the mixture is even (else you'll have burnt condensed milk). Add the cashew-almond paste and the saffron paste and simmer the mixture for about 10-15 minutes. It will begin to thicken nicely.
In a small frying ladle, heat the clarified butter and add the raisins and cashews and fry for a minute or two. Add to the milk mixture.
Garnish with the almond slivers and the saffron strands, if using.
As we complete 13 months of marriage today, I send my favourite kheer to Sunita for her Think Spice... Think Saffron event.
My last post was about how I've been inspired. Now I'd like to introduce someone who has been inspired by me and my blog. My friend and neighbour, S, has just started her own food blog. Please visit http://thedreamingcook.blogspot.com/ and give her the encouragement she needs.
I'm off to the Himalayas again for a weekend of treks and white water rafting. I'll see you all when I get back. Have a happy Dassara.
hey Raaga! gr8 recipe. im drooling over it!!! cant wait to try it.
Hey raaga, lovely kheer dear..:) and Congrats on 13 month anniversary..:D

Excellent looking sweet, yum! Have a great time Raaga. Have a fun Navratri too!:))
i am J... not for kheer(i too am not a kheer lover like u) but for ur himalaya trekking and river rafting ;) have a wonderful time raaga:)
hey Raaga!! Simple n incredible dish!!! and hey visited S's blog. Its wodnerful to see you encouraging your FRIEND
you know this should not be called kheer - kheers/ payasams are not meant to taste good - i run at the mere mention of the word payasam (vermicelli is the worst according to me :) ).
badam kheer is an exception to the rule.
Raaga, the kheer sounds wonderful...and you enjoy your trek...Oh, Dinesh will be so envious if I mention it...he had gone on a few himself and every now and then longs for more...in fact we both do.(sigh)
Wow... Badam Kheer!!! Yummy!!!
And congrats on 13th month Anniversary :)
Badam kheer looks very tasty. Have a happy trip in the Himalayas.
The Kheer looks so creamy and silky, I am a kheer lover and can have the whole bowl of it, pls pass on!
okay..now i want to do something fun...trekking and rafting! nice :)
btw...love badam kheer too...but too lazy to make it...
Badam kheer looks delicious!!! good entry for the event!
that kheer looks so good! yummmmmmmmmmmm!
Hey i am a sweet person. Love the kheer
I'm a payasam lover and your badam kheer looks soooo good. Nice presentation. I do it similar to you except the use of cashews and raisins. Will try it your way next time.
I like kheers with freshly grind badam its so rich and delicious. Nice entry Raaga.
I've never had badam kheer after I came to the US. Bcoz, every time we newly weds were invited to dinner/lunch, the menu is almost ditto. Drumstick sambar ;), potato curry, kootu, badam kheer...aaahhh...
I love badam kheer, or kheer for that matter :). Yours looks really good. and hey, ejoy the trekking, dear :). Have fun!
Nice looking badam kheer. And congrats on ur 13th month anniversary.
Happy rafting n relaxing times in the himalayas.
See ya soon.
I love vermicelli and rice kheer. This one is new to me.
It's a pity that I'm lactose intolerant and can't enjoy these :(
Happy looking n rich kheer!:) Congratulations on completing 13months of married life..
Inspired by you, I sent this for the event:
chk it put when you get time
Lovely looking kheer! Till lakshmi got married , badam kheer was always there in the festival menu as she wound'nt try any other kheer or paayasam.!
It's wonderful Raaga. Enjoy your break. Viji
