Almond Kheer

Posted on Updated on

Almonds are among the healthy dry fruits. People consume this normally in the morning after having soaked them overnight. It reduces the cholestrol level in the blood as well. We also use it in the gravy of almost all the north indian dishes which really gives a awesome taste to the dish. I have already put up Almond burfi and today I would like to put up Almond kheer which can either be served warm or chilled. See other such recipes here.

What you need to have:

1. Almonds 25- 30

2. Cashews -4-6

3. Cardamom – 2-3

4. Milk – 5 cups

5. Saffron – A few strings

6. Sugar – As per taste

Ingredients of Almond Kheer

What you do with what you have:

1. Soak almonds in water for about an hour so that one is able to peal it. Grind the pealed almonds with cashews and milk in the grinder to fine consistency.

2. Soak half the quantity of saffron strings in warm milk so that it releases the aroma and the colour in it.

3. Place a thick bottomed skillet with milk in it on medium flame and bring it to boil.

4. Add ground Almond-cashew mix from step 1 to it and keep stiring continously. Now add sugar and cardamom powder. When it starts thickening, add saffron mixed milk to it which gives a wonderful colour and aroma.

5. Transfer it a serving bowl and serve either chill or warm.

Ready to serve Almond Kheer

How long it takes: 30 minutes(other than soaking of Almonds)

Number of servings: 3-4

    Nice, easy and healthy recipe. My son liked it most…when I prepared.
    Thanks. The title of the post is Amond kheer, i think has to be corrected as Almond Kheer.

    Hi Ma.

    Made this for dessert at a lunch for friends we had two weeks ago. Very similar to my mom’s recipe and I really like this because it is so quick to make! I typically don’t use cashews, but I used them this time and found that it enhanced the taste ! I compromised by using low-fat milk and it turned out to be a nice healthy dessert πŸ™‚

      Hi Harini,

      I also prepare this dish many a times for guests since it is not only easy to prepare but also a delicious one too.
