Last day of First Week marathon. It is a dessert for my Party Menu.
A simple dish that can be made ahead and served in a big bowl or in individual portions.
Yes it is the heavenly sinful Badam Kheer. This has always been my favorite when I visit Shree Mithai. This dish in particular is very close to my heart. A small story on why it is close to my heart. When I made this dish and took it to office, a colleague of mine could not resist when she saw the Kheer and had about 7 spoons of the Kheer. Now you may wonder what is so special about her having so much Kheer. The point is that, she was on a strict diet and never budges for any delicacy that might ruin her diet. She made my day, I did not have the heart to stop her. She made my day by her act.
