How to Make Plain Multi-Nut Shake

  • Boil 2 cups of water and soak the almonds in it for 45 mins.
  • Wash half of the pistachios and keep aside.
  • Clean the rest of the pistachios and the cashews and keep aside.
  • Soak and dissolve the saffron in 1/4 cup of hot water.
  • Peel the almond and discard the skins.
  • Blend the almonds and the washed pistachios with 1 cup of water in the blender (mixie) and make it into a fine paste.
  • Boil this paste to get rid of the raw smell.
  • When it boils, remove it from the stove and keep aside.
  • Boil the milk in a kadai or heavy-bottom container and simmer it for about 15-20 mins.
  • Keep stirring frequently to avoid the milk getting burnt.
  • When the milk is well boiled, add the badam-pista paste to it and mix well.
  • Cook for 5-6 mins so that the flavour blends well with the milk.
  • Add sugar to this mixture and mix well.
  • Let it cook for another 5 mins and remove from stove.
  • Roast the cardamom in 1/2 tsp of ghee and powder it in the blender.
  • Roast the rest of the pistachios and cashews (both finely diced) in 1 tbsp of ghee and keep aside.
  • Mix cardamom powder, roasted nuts and the saffron liquid to the kheer.
  • Chill this in the refrigerator and serve in tall glasses.
