hyderabadi Badam Ka harira Almond Milk

Its been more than a week that Ramadan has started and doing fasts for almost 20hrs is bit tough and tiresome...it's like if days are longer your fasts will be longer, i just wonder how the people on totally north of the world are fasting. Yes if you are doing for the sake of the creator your hardship will be easier on them, so do for us.
Our appetite goes down as we have odd times of having meals and duration of meals...so I always make sure we are hydrated and have healthy meals at suhoor and Iftar. My family loves to have more veggies and desserts than meat...so if you observe my recipe list you will get to know about it.
Today's recipe is Badam ka Harira is rich almond milk with lots of almonds going in it. This is a thick beverage which is flavoured up with Cardamon and clove and is naturally coloured with saffron. Badam ka harira is healthy way to have almonds and tastes great and this can accompanied with roti's or for breakfast.This is going to be part of our #foodiemonday #bloghop under #indianspicessorted theme. Once the theme was decided, i thought of doing something spicy but because of sweet tooth i finally ended up with this healthy beverage.

  1. This sounds really filling and healthy! Addition of cloves sounds interesting... here it is 15 hours with temperatures near to 45 degrees and by the time it is Iftaar, we are all with dry throats... hehe... I am also wondering how it is more than that time... with limited night time.. May Allah make it easy for you and all Muslims there!

  2. Awesome share...quick and helathy

  6. Assalamualaikum Nisa! So much has happened on your blog and hope to catch up soon. Its last 10 days of Ramadan coming and I can't imagine how swiftly the days passed off and I left wondering if I have done enough.. This almond harira is so similar to one my mom makes but addition of clove is new to me and I am surely gonna try it. My ramadan so far has been just with cold drinks as its so hot and dry even with AC on. When I get into a non ac side of my home it is like a burning furnace. Hope its getting better for you. Adorable clicks with those lovely shades.

    1. yeah true famidha...days passed so fast...even though here it is cold with sunny intervals we feel the thirst because of long hours
