Badam kheer is quite a delicious and sweet drink prepared with grounded almond paste along with thick milk,sugar and saffron strands...This is a fabulous milk based deesert which is quite often served chilled in many occasions, i had this wonderful drink long back and this weekend i prepared this fantastic and nutritious drink with more saffrons,chironji or charoli (saara paruppu in tamil)...I dont need to talk or say more about this wonderful and rich looking kheer coz most of us would have enjoyed this drink atleast once in our life...Instead of making this kheer over stovetop, i prepared this creamy and delicious saffron badam kheer through microwave oven and obviously this kheer turned out super delicious and fantabulous,please note that cooking time may varies according to your microwave oven power.....We enjoyed this saffron badam kheer chilled which suits truly tremendous for this hot weather and we relished it happily..To know more about chironji, pls do check here..Sending to MEC-Calcium Rich Food guest hosted by Lakshmi,event by Srivalli & Anamika's Drive Me Nuts..
