Since I was little busy, I had been looking for a simple recipe to publish this week. This was waiting for long in the line, now it is best time to show its face, specially in this hot weather..
Actually I had no idea what to call this, simply a payasam or a delicious chilled drink? A drink prepared with almonds would always be rich and delicious! I loved it when served chilled, especially its thickness with almond taste.. Do add more milk to change the thickness according to your taste.
Ingredients used for preparing
badam 1/2 cup
milk 1/2 litre
sugar 1/4 cup or as per your taste
cardomam 1 crushed or cardomaom powder 2 pinches
saffron few strands
How to prepare
Peel badam. (see here how to peel badam). Grind it with little milk to a thick paste. This paste should be fine.
Boil milk. Add this paste to the boiling milk. Add sugar and powdered cardomam.
continue stirring. When this begins to thick, add few saffron strands and remove from fire. Put crushed pistachios or cashewnuts. I prefer drinking this chilled.
