To make badam paal

  1. Boil a cup of milk in a kettle. If you are vegan, you can use any plant based milk. Add in a heaped teaspoon of the prepared badam milk powder and a teaspoon of sugar. Bring to a simmer for couple of minutes. Remove from heat and serve hot!


I like to use almonds with the skin on. The skin gets ground to a fine powder. You can use peeled almonds too if you want a brighter color on the finished almond milk. If feeding for children, soak the almonds overnite in water and dry them completely the next day and proceed with the recipe as it will be easier for digestion. Almonds can be slightly roasted too.
