How to make badam gheer drink

  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • A few saffron strands (optional)


  1. Soak the almonds in water for at least an hour. This will make them easier to peel.
  2. Peel the almonds and grind them into a fine paste using a food processor or blender.
  3. Heat the ghee in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the almond paste and fry until it turns golden brown.
  4. Add the milk to the saucepan and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the sugar and cardamom powder to the saucepan and stir to combine.
  6. If using saffron, soak the saffron strands in a few tablespoons of warm milk for about 10 minutes, then add them to the saucepan and stir to combine.
  7. Simmer the mixture for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until it reaches the desired consistency.
  8. Serve the badam gheer hot or cold, garnished with a sprinkle of cardamom powder or a few almonds.
