The festivities are arriving soon and we at Spoon Fork And Food are gearing up our self for some sweet treat. Bringing you a rich, creamy, delicious and easy dessert that can be made with handful of ingredients and you can also make it quickly if you have unplanned guests at home for dinner. Paneer Badam Kheer is one such exotic dessert that will definitely make you lick your finger and ask for more. It’s been quite a long time i have been making Paneer Badam Kheer at home for my guests and it has never let me down. It’s certainly a show stopper at my place and now i’m finally sharing the recipe here and would strongly recommend everyone to give it a try once and i’m sure you won’t regret ever.
To make this super rich and creamy dessert all you need to do is Blanch Almonds and remove skin. Collect in almonds in a grinder jar and add around 2 tbsp of milk. Grind to make a fine paste and keep aside. Heat milk in a thick bottomed pan and bring it to boil. Add cardamom powder and saffron strands and start condensing the milk in low flames. This might take 20-25 mins. Keep stirring in intervals. When the milk comes to half it’s quantity, it means it’s nicely condensed. Add grated or crumbled paneer and cook in low flames for another 6-7 mins. Now add sugar and almond paste. As soon as the sugar dissolves the milk might again look thin. Cook till it thick and creamy again. Turn off the gas let the kheer cool and come down to room temperature. Transfer the kheer in a bowl, garnish with some saffron strands and chopped nuts. Your Paneer Badam Kheer is ready to serve. If you like to have your kheer chilled then refrigerate for some time before serving.
