Badam Halwa



Badam Halwa4


Badam Halwa!!! Your mouth would start watering by just saying the word isn't it!

Yes its one of the most delicious, rich, expensive and drool worthy Indian sweet. You can easily flatter your guest by serving them home made badam halwa. :)

Me and mom had made 2 kgs of this halwa and packed it with us to native. All our relatives gave one common expression.. and it was ummmmmmmmmmmm... :):):):)

All smiles!!!


Badam Halwa1


Ingredients:


Badam(Almond) - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 cups
Milk - 3 cups
Food color- yellow - a pinch
Saffron strands - few


Badam Halwa2

Method:

Soak badam in warm water for 2- 3 hours. Now peal the skin and grind it in mixie into a paste(not so smooth) by adding little milk to it.

Take the ground paste, the remaining milk and sugar in a heavy bottomed vessel or a nonstick pan. Keep stirring it in medium flame till it becomes slight thick. Once it reaches dosa batter consistency, add the food color and ghee and stir for just two mins till it all blends. Now switch off the flame and let it cool. Don't panic if the consistency is lose, it would automatically become thick once it cools down. Top it with saffron strands. :)

Yummy home made badam halwa is ready to eat. :)

Enjoy eating the truly Indian delicacy. :)
