According to Ayurveda, eating almonds (Badam) makes the brain sharp, and almonds also give strength and bring agility to the body. Chef Kunal shares the recipes for two badam-based desserts. Generally, pedas are made with khoya (mawa), but in this recipe, the chef uses milk derived from badam, i.e., almond milk, to make badam milk and badam peda.

He infuses the desserts with saffron, cardamom powder, nutmeg, and rose water to make them more flavourful and delectable. These delightful desserts are great for people allergic to dairy products.
