Badam Ki Kheer

Ingredients : 1 cup almonds , 1 litre milk , 1\2 teaspoon cardamom seeds , 3\4 cup sugar , few drops of kewra essence , 2-3 silver leaves (varak) optional.

Instructions : 1. Soak almond in plenty of water for several hours or overnight. Skin the almonds and in a blender or food processor grind them to a smooth paste, adding enough milk for smooth paste. 2. Put rest of the milk in a heavy based pan, add cardamom’s seeds and bring to a boil, simmer over low heat until 3\4 liter milk is left. 3. Stirring constantly, add almond paste and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the kheer is thick. 4. Add sugar and stirring constantly dissolve it. Sugar will make the mixture thin, cook uncovered until it is thick and water from sugar has evaporated. 5. Remove from heat, add kewra essence, stir and cover for few minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with silver leaves.
