Almond Payasam Recipe

Any dish made using almonds is unfailingly rich, quite befitting royalty! keep the spices such as cardamom to a minimum in this recipe, so as to highlight the creamy, soothing texture and flavour of almonds. Authentic Badam kheer (sweet almond dessert) made the south indian way omits cardamoms and nutmeg and uses a pinch of raw camphor and saffron (both added after the kheer is removed from the fire) instead. But if you do not find raw camphor, fret not; just go ahead with this recipe as it is!
