Badam Halwa is a rich and tasty indian dessert prepared with almonds ,sugar ,saffron and ghee and also its our family fav halwa.Learnt this recipe from one of my dearest friend.
30 mins for soaking
Almonds/Badam -1/2 Cup
Sugar -1/2 Cup
Ghee -1/3 Cup
Saffron -Few strands(soak it in a tbspn of warm milk)
Milk - 1/3 Cup
*Soak the almonds hot water and peel the skin.Grind the almonds in milk to a smooth paste.
In a non stick kadai add sugar+1/4 cup water,let the sugar dissolves completely.Now add the badam paste and cook on medium flame stirring continuously.
Once it starts thickening,add the saffron soaked milk and melted ghee little by little and cook on low flame stirring continuously.
The ghee will be completely absorbed and halwa will start leaving the sides of the pan,now switch off the flame and let it cool down.
Use homemade ghee and good quality of almonds for best taste. If your halwa is sticky,then poured it again in pan and add more ghee to get the right consistency. It can be stored upto 3-4 days at room temperature.
