Badam Pakh

Ingredients
  Milk 1 Liter
  Cream 125 Gram
  Almonds 1 Kilogram, blanched
  Butter 350 Gram
  Rose water 1⁄2 Liter
  Cardamoms 1 Teaspoon
  Nutmeg 1 Teaspoon, crushed
  Sugar 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
Directions

Cook milk on low heat till reduced by half.
Cool and add cream.
Fry almonds lightly in butter till golden.
Cool and mince coarsely with a little chilled rosewater.
This prevents the oil oozing out of almonds.
Make a syrup with remaining rosewater and sugar.
Boil to a thread.
Remove from fire, add almonds, milk and butter in which almonds were fried.
Mix well and cook on low heat, till mixture reaches consistency of a thick batter.
Add spices, mix well and pour into a serving dish, or store in a glass jar.
