I am all exited when I saw that my blog has 100 followers. Oh yes today it became 101 too... I was down with fever & cold for past 3 days & yesterday morning when I realized about it I just couldn't wait making some sweet dish as a sign of celebration.This time I'm paired with Mugdha of Cooking Fundas for Blog hop Wednesdays. When I was going thru her recipes I came across " Badam Kheer ". I felt it was kind of easy considering my situation & went a head making it. It was just awesome & satisfied my sweet tooth a lot.
1/4 Cup vermicelli
2 Cups milk ( Non-Fat)
1 Tsp ghee/butter
1 Cup sugar
1 Tsp cardamon Powder
1 Tsp sliced almonds & saffron flower/kumkum puvvu
Take water in a vessel & bring to boil. Now add almonds to the water. Allow them to boil for few mins & switch off heat.
Filter almonds & allow them to cool. Now peel of the almonds skin & grind them to a smooth paste with little milk.
Take a wide pan and heat it with ghee. Add vermicelli to it & light fry them ( This will give a unique taste to vermicelli). Once done add milk to the pan & bring it to boil. Cook till vermicelli is done.
Take a little warm milk along with saffron & mix well.
Now add sugar & almond paste to pan & bring it to boil. Now switch off heat and mix cardamon powder & saffron milk.
Serve it with almonds sprinkled on it.
1. The sweetness is just enough in this dish. If you like a more sweeter version add little more sugar to it.
2. You can avoid vermicelli from this dish or you can add sabudana in place of vermicelli too.
