We are approaching Navratri this week. Many home have started the grand preparation to celebrate for the auspicious 9 days. In case you are looking for some last minute recipes to prepare for offering to the Goddedd, then you are at the right place. Badami Payasa / Almond kheer is a quick , delicious and nutritious payasa to offer to the goddess. It is a very quick and easy recipe.

Some benefits of Eating Almonds:

  • Almonds contain lots of healthy fats,
  • Rich in fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E
  • They are known to reduce Cholesterol Level and Blood sugar level.
  • Almonds are rich in AntiOxidants.

Main Ingredients for Badami Payasa / Almond Kheer:

  • Almonds : I have powdered the raw almonds and used them . You can even soak them in advance ,peel the skin and grind to a fine paste.
  • Jaggery Powder: I have used organic jaggery powder. It s clean and can be readily used. In case you are using normal jaggery, melt it and strain it and then use.
  • Freshly Grated Coconut: I am glad i have access to coconuts here. Hence i have used freshly grated coconut. You can use frozen ones but thaw it before using .
  • Cardamom Powder: It enhances the flavor of the payasa or kheer.
  • Ghee: Ghee is very good for health. It is a flavor enhancer. I have used home made ghee here. Make the payasa so rich and creamy.
  • Full Fat Milk: Always use full fat milk for better results. It gives a nice creamy texture.
  • Raisins: It is a good source of Potassium , fat free , cholesterol free and high in AntiOxidants.
