One Of The Best Indian Drink Recipe Of Chilled Badam Milk

Categories : Desserts

Chilled Badam Milk is a popular Indian Drink made with milk and fresh almond paste.

It’s usually flavoured with cardamom and saffron making it an aromatic and flavourful drink!

I am not much of a milk fan. In fact, when I was little I used to hate to milk. My mom would do everything she could do to make me drink milk but I would always resist.

The only few ways that I would drink milk was when it was flavoured or in milkshakes.

Chilled Badam Milk on a hot summer day was a treat that I enjoyed!!!

What is Badam Milk

Badam Milk is a popular Indian Drink where almonds are blended with milk and flavoured with saffron and cardamom.

It’s a very delicious drink but at the same time it’s also very rich both in texture and calories.

Ingredients For Making Badam Milk:

• 35 almonds 40 grams

• 1 liter whole milk

• generous pinch saffron dissolved in 1 tablespoon milk

• 4-6 tablespoons granulated white sugar 50-75 grams, or to taste

• 5-6 green cardamom pods seeds removed & crushed using a mortar and pestle

• 1/2 teaspoon rose water optional

How To Make Badam Milk:

It’s very easy to make Badam Milk at home. You need only few ingredients.

Milk : You get the best results with whole milk. You can make badam milk with low fat milk as well as but whole milk makes it thicker and creamier.

Almonds : : I use a lot of almonds in my almond milk because I want the almond flavor to be prominent.

Sugar : Of course you need some sweetener for this drink. I use regular sugar, you can use any sweetener that you like.

Cardamom : My favorite spice and also a key ingredient here. I used fresh cardamom pods, crush them in a mortar & pestle and then use in the recipe.

Saffron : It not only gives the badam milk a nice yellow color but also make it aromatic. The key to getting a nice color is crush saffron strands with your hands and then add in 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot milk.

Method:

1- Soak almond in hot water for 20 minutes.

2- After 20 minutes, discard the water and then remove the skin from each almond. It will come off easily.

3- Transfer blanched almonds with ¼ cup milk to a blender.

4- Blend to a smooth paste. Set it aside.

5- Now transfer the remaining milk to a pan and put in on medium-high heat.

6- As the milk warms up, take out 1 tablespoon of the warm milk from the pan into a small bowl and add crushed saffron strands to it. Set aside.

7- Once the milk in the pan comes to a boil, add the prepared almond paste to it. Stir to combine.

8- Lower the heat to low medium and let the milk simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir often so that milk doesn’t get stuck to the bottom of the pan. The raw smell of almonds should disappear completely.

9- Add in the saffron milk that you had set aside.

10- Then add the sugar and stir until it’s dissolved.

11- Finally add in the crushed cardamom seeds.

12- Mix everything together and turn off the heat.

Serve badam milk hot or cold. I personally love it chilled.
