Badam Milk /Almond MilkShake

Almond is packed with nutrients.Almonds are rich source of vitamin E,protein,Vitamin B,essential minerals and monounsaturated fat,one of the two fats which potentially may lower LDL cholesterol(Source:Wikipedia).
There is no story behind the making of Badam milk.I was thirsty and wanted to have some rich,creamy shake and thus sprouted the idea of Madam Badam milk :) Do try them and Enjoy your Summer!!

 
Serves : 2 small cups

INGREDIENTS:
  • Almonds/Badam - 25
  • Saffron strands/Kesar - 7 strands
  • Cardamon -  2(crushed)
  • Milk - 2 cups +2 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp
  • Sugar - 1 1/2 to 2 tsp(adjust as per taste)
  • Rose essence - 2 drops
  • Condensed Milk - 2 Tbsp 

For Garnishing:
Sliced Cashewnuts /Pistachios/Badams
Saffron strands

METHOD:
  1. Soak Almonds in hot water for an hour.Remove the skin and grind them to a smooth paste with 2 Tbsp milk.
  2. Soak saffron in a Tbsp of warm milk.
  3.  Heat 2 cups of milk in a pan,let the milk boil for a few minutes till it becomes slightly thick,then add the condensed milk,almond paste and keep stirring them in medium flame till the paste blends well.
  4. Add the soaked saffron milk,cardamon powder,sugar and stir again for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the rose essence,give it a stir and switch off the stove.
  6. Garnish with sliced cashews,pistachios,badams,saffron strands and serve hot.
  7. Refrigerate for a few hours if you want to serve it cold.Enjoy!!


SCRIBBLED NOTES:
  • Serving with malai or cream of milk formed makes it more richer
  • Adjust sugar as per your taste
  • Adding rose essence and condensed milk is optional,but it enhances the taste .
  • Badam Milk thickens by time
  • In some shops,they add Almond essence
