badam kheer recipe, almond payasam

Kheer and payasam recipes are easy to prepare during festive occasions and do not take a lot of time. Most of the times for religious or festive occasions, I prepare Sooji halwa or Rice kheer or Vermicelli kheer.

Badam kheer recipe looks similar to badam milk, but the taste as well as the consistency is different. Badam kheer is creamier and thicker as compared to badam milk which is a light refreshing beverage drink.

Badam kheer can be served warm or chilled. serve almond kheer as a dessert after meals.
