Any dish made using almonds is unfailingly rich, quite befitting royalty! keep the spices such as cardamom to a minimum in this recipe, so as to highlight the creamy, soothing texture and flavour of almonds. Authentic ‘badam kheer’ made the south indian way omits cardamoms and nutmeg and uses a pinch of raw camphor and saffron (both added after the kheer is removed from the fire) instead. But if you do not find raw camphor, fret not; just go ahead with this recipe as it is!
