Print Friendly and PDF


Badam Ka Halwa:

Today is our Wedding Anniversary...!   To celebrate this sweet occasion, I wished to prepare my Hubby’s favorite dessert Badam Halwa, and very happy, when it turned out to be perfect. 
I love my DH as he is always affectionate, understanding, caring and makes me feel special and valuable… I admire his wonderful mind, beautiful soul and the cute surprises he reserves for me..:))
This halwa made of almonds, milk, sugar and clarified butter  is a rich, scrumptious, mouth watering delicacy and quick to make.
This is how I prepared  this sweet, smooth, melt in mouth dessert…:)
Ingredients:
  • Badam / Almond                       - 1 cup
  • Milk                                          - 1 cup
  • Saffron strands                         - a few
  • Ghee                                        - 1 cup
  • Sugar                                       - 2 cup
  • Cardamom pwd                         - ¼ tsp
Method:
  1. Soak almonds in hot water for ½ an hour.
  1. Peel off the skin.
  1. Grind to fine paste with milk in a blender.
  2. Soak saffron strands in 2 tbsp of warm milk.
  3. Take  a non stick kadhai .
  4. Add 4 tbsp ghee and allow to heat.
  1. Now add almond paste and stir in low flame.
  1. Cook for 5 to 7 mins.
  1. Once it thickens, add remaining milk, saffron soaked in milk and stir well.
  1. Cook further for 3 to 4 mins or till it thickens in low flame.
  2. Now add sugar and cardamom pwd .
  1. Stir continuously in low flame.
  2. The sugar dissolves and the mixture turns liquid.
  1. Continue stirring till the mixture thickens and attains halwa consistency.
  1. Add remaining ghee and mix well.
  1. Garnish with almond slices and saffron strands.
  1. Enjoy  hot n delicious badam halwa now...:)
Have a lovely day..!
