Recipe Notes

Tips
Never add sugar before reducing the milk. There is a danger that the milk will singe.
Do not boil the kheer too much after adding the badam paste or you will get a bitter taste.
If you want to use this recipe to make Badam Milk, use only 15 Almonds and just boil the milk; do not reduce it.
