43 BADAM / ALMOND HALWA - My 500th Post

Badam / Almond Halwa


A sweet dish to start with the New year and also to celebrate my 500th post. Can't believe that I reached 500 in 2 years of blogging. Thanks to each one of you to make this happen. Keep visiting and conitnue your support.

Almonds - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Saffron strands - few


For garnishing:-
Almond flakes and or chironji nuts



If using almonds with skin - then immerse in hot water(1 cup) or microwave in bowl for a minute or two(wait for 15 minutes) and squeeze out the skin to peel out.
Soak almonds in water for 3 - 4 hours. Soak and grind to a paste( not to a very fine paste- just a coarse paste will work good(taste and texture wise)).


Heat a tbsp of ghee and add paste, cook for 4 - 5 minutes and add milk. Keep stirring often so not to stick to the pan and cook till all the water leaves out. Next add sugar and another tbsp of ghee and cook till it is thick and all the moisture has absorbed. Finally add the remaining ghee and saffrom strands. Cool, once cool it will be start to thicken. Garnish with almond flakes and or chironji nuts and enjoy.
Can reduce the amount of water and milk to 3/4 cup each.


Here I have used a pack of silvered almonds. I did not soak - planned to make it all of a sudden on hubby's request. So just toasted in a pan to make them lightly crisp and made a paste with water immediately. Late followed the above recipe. Kids and hubby just loved and asked me to make it again soon.
