Hot and Cold Badam Milk

Badam Milk is the most healthy drink. One can have it either cold or hot. All of you know many things used for almonds (badam) . Almond, although popularly referred to as a nut , is edible and widely cultivated seed of the Almond tree.

I have made powder of this and stored in a airtight container. In india most of the people buy readymade Almond/Badam powder. One can add Cardamom and kesar (saffron) to this powder to make it more aromatic and tasty. Almonds are very expensive in india. Badam powder is veryrich of protien. I love the cold badam milk with the badam pieces in it. I used to have it in Mysore at the famous eatery “The Bombay Tiffinies.”

Here are my recipes for both the powder and milk

Ingredients for Badam / Almond Powder
  • Almonds / Badam - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Cardamom (Green Cardamom pods / seeds ) - 4 to 5
  • Kesar / Saffron strands - 1/4 tsp
  • Take a large wok / Pan heat a pan for few minutes
  • Add almonds / badam fry for 2 minutes. Take out from the flame and keep aside
  • In the same pan add saffron (do not switch on the stove) leave for 2 minutes
  • In a mixer add sugar, cardamom and kesar grind and make a fine powder. Keep aside
  • Add almonds / badam into the mixer grind a fine powder
  • Take a large bowl mix almond / badam powder and sugar powder mix well and store it in airtight box.

Ingredients for Badam Milk
  • Almond / Badam or Pista pieces - 2 tsp
  • Saffron / Kesar - Few strands (soaked in hot milk)
  • Sugar to taste
  • Take a large saucepan add 2 or more glasses of cold milk. Bring to boil then cool it
  • Add almond / badam powder, sugar (to taste) and saffron stir well (refrigerate if you want cold)
  • Garnish badam & pista pieces &
