Bridal Shower for Nithya - Badam Kheer / Almond Milk

What is a celebration without a traditional drink. Badam Kheer!! This is an easy to make Almond drink which tastes great when warm and still better when served chilled. And what are we celebrating?? Nithya's (virtual) Bridal Shower. I bet you would very well know Nithya of 4thsensecooking. For those of you who don't, Nithya is a lovely blogger and an excellent photographer. Do check out her space for some beautiful food clicks. 
We are celebrating this joyous occasion by having a bridal shower. And what better way to celebrate than to cook up, and by cook up we mean literally with food our common interest. To make it even more interesting we decided to make dishes from her space itself. I am bringing Badam Kheer and Tollhouse Cookies. Do check out Nithya's recipe here.
Also do check out who else are participating in the celebration. And for you come join the fun!!
Serves - 4
Milk - 500 ml (approx 2 cups)
Almonds/Badam - 20 to 25
Sugar - 4 tbsp
Saffron strands - 5-6
Hot water - 1 cup
Soak the almonds in hot water for an hour. Peel the almonds by just pressing hard with the thumb and index finger. The skin would just come off easily. Puree the almonds in a mixer using little water until it becomes a smooth paste. Heat the milk and sugar until it boils. Take about a tbsp of hot milk and add the saffron strands. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the ground almond paste and allow it to boil for another 5 mins. Remove from heat and add the saffron milk. Serve warm. You can also refrigerate for 2-4 hrs and serve chilled.
