Badam Payasam is the fav payasam of my whole family. The most flattering thing is that my parents-in-law always ask me to make this kheer for any auspicious occasion which demands 'sweet preparation'! So I have no reason not to prepare. To make every occasion special go ahead and prepare Badam kheer and enjoy!

Badam Kheer

Ingredients - 

Almonds/Badam 1/2 cup
Cashews 1/4 cup
Raisins handful (Optional)
Milk 4 cups
Sugar/Brown Sugar 1.5 cups
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Custard Powder 2 tsp (Optional)

Method Of Preparation - 

Dry Roast Almonds and Cashews and grind them to a fine powder. Alternatively, soak almonds and cashews for couple of hrs and grind to a fine paste.

In a heavy bottomed pan, boil milk and add the almond-cashew powder/paste.  

Add sugar and let keep stirring the kheer until desired consistency. I usually add a little custard powder (mixed well in a 2-3 Tbsp of milk) for extra flavor and thickness and the process of making kheer is faster. 

Add cardamom powder and mix well and switch off the flame and serve hot or cold as per preference. Garnish with sliced almonds, roasted cashews and fried raisins. (I didn't do the garnish as my kids don't like the extras!)

Note - I usually add boiled and mashed carrots to the kheer to increase the quantity specially for large gatherings. The carrots add a distinct color and taste to the kheer making it extra special.

I am sending Badam Payasam to 'Celebrate Sweets - Kheer' event hosted by Taste of Pearl City which was started by Nivedita.
