Today's recipe for the letter B is Badam Kheer. Though I have had some badam milk quite a few times, I had this kheer for the first time just after marriage. This is one of MIL's speciality and beloved's favourite. Since then fell in love with this lusciously sweet, creamy and nutty pudding. Though a little time consuming, it is easy to prepare with just a few ingredients. So nowadays this shows its presence on most of the important occasions.
This recipe is for letter "B" under "Regional" theme. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 32

Nisha, it is very well made but almonds are tad bit fattening, so i may make this with a little more milk in it when I do, but it will work wonders for my little one
