Bring the milk to a boil and simmer on low heat. Add some of the milk to a bowl and mix the ground almonds and rice. Add the mixture to the simmering milk and cook it on low heat stirring it often until the rice is cooked. Add the sugar, saffron, cardamom powder and mix. Let the kheer cook until the milk is reduced and the rice is cooked. It can be cooked to your desired thickness, taking any where from half an hour to an hour.

Let the kheer cool a little and garnish with chopped almonds before serving.
