badam milk recipe with step by step pics. badam doodh or almond milk is a sweet beverage drink from the awadhi cuisine. this is a really delicious drink flavored with ground almonds, cardamon powder and saffron. badam milk can be had hot or cold. in winters, you can have it hot and in summers you can have it chilled.

badam milk recipe

almonds in their raw form with the peels are heaty (garam). when you soak them in water they become cooling (thanda). so if you plan to make badam milk for a cooling purpose, then soak the almonds overnight or for 7 to 8 hours. soaking almonds also makes them better to digest and increases their nutritive value. its good to include almonds in the diet as they are rich in vitamin E, protein, essential minerals and are good for the brain and have many health benefits. i have also shared instant masala milk and masala milk powder recipe made with dry fruits and nuts. few more almond based recipes on blog are:

  1. badam ladoo
  2. badam kheer
  3. almond halwa

in this badam milk recipe i have used a shortcut method of soaking almonds for 30 minutes in hot water. but this method is good if you want the warming nature of the almonds and not cooling. since it has been raining here too much and its cold throughout, i have used this method. during summers, i soak almonds overnight.

the ancient indian wisdom says that in cold season, have warming food and in hot summers have cooling food. so if you want a cooling almond drink for summers, then soak the almonds overnight or for 7 to 8 hours. for the almond milk to be warming during the winters, soak almonds for less time or soak in hot water for 3o minutes.

in this recipe you can skip saffron (kesar) if you want. kesar is also heaty and if you plan to have badam milk for cooling the body, then avoid saffron. this badam milk recipe can be easily halved or doubled.

  1. Hi.
    Is it possible to store the badam paste. If yes, how?

    • preeti i have already replied to your comment before. please refresh the page and you can see the comments.

  2. Hi.
    Can d badam paste be made n stored for few days? If yes then how n for how many days.

    • preeti, paste will stay good only for about 4 to 5 days. you can make badam powder in bulk and freeze it. it will stay good for at least a month. blanch almonds in hot water overnight. when you have enough time, then peel the almonds. let them dry a bit. you can spread them on a plate for 10 to 15 minutes. then grind to a fine powder. do not over do the grinding as then oil will release from them. you can also use the pulse option and grind in parts. then remove and store in an air tight box. refrigerate or freeze. in the freezer the badam powder will stay for a long time. then just heat it with milk & sugar and serve. when grinding you can even add some cardamom seeds and saffron.

      • Thanks a lot for ur suggestion. I will follow the same.

        • Welcome Preeti

  3. Hi dassana,
    If I soak the almonds overnight and then use hot water technique to get peels off, will it work? Actually I wanted to use cooling almonds but soaked almonds have to be peeled individuality which takes more time
    Or can we soak them overnight after removing peels first?
    I hope I didn’t make it confusing..

    • ruchi, you soak almonds directly in hot water overnight and then in the morning the peels come off easily. since they are soaked overnight, thus the badam will be cooling. if badam is soaked in water which is at room temperature overnight, it does not peel of easily. but when soaked in hot water the peels come of easily. then you just need to press the peel and it slides and you can remove it easily. hope this helps.

      • yes this sounds easy. Thanks a lot.

        • Welcome Ruchi
