Now coming to the recipe Almond Halwa / Badam Halwa, this is one rich and delicious Indian sweet made of Almonds, sugar & saffron. This is also very simple and easy to make sweet. Have tried this halwa so many times but this time made it specially to post here as Anniversary special post to Thank You all Spicy Treats' readers, visitors, Fans with this Delicious treat. This is one easy method which i adapted from Vahchef's video. Now off to the recipe...
- Almonds 1 cup
- Sugar 1 cup
- Milk 1/4 cup
- Saffron 10-12 strands
- Cardamom powder 1 generous pinch
- Ghee 3 tbsp
Wash and soak almonds with enough water for 2-3 hours. If you wanted to make it in hurry, then bring 3-4 cups of water to boil and add almonds to the boiling water and let it soak for 30 - 40 minutes and then peel the skin and keep ready.
After that, take a non stick pan, heat it with 1 tbsp ghee and add the ground almond paste and stir fry for 2 minutes.
And add saffron and keep stirring in medium heat until almond paste bubbles and becomes thicken slightly, now add 2-3 tsp ghee and keep stirring.
That's it...Rich & Delicious Almond Halwa ready.
If you find hard grinding nuts with less milk, then add couple of tbsp of milk and blend.
Alternatively you can make a sugar syrup and add the ground paste to it and proceed.
Do not cook halwa in high heat, medium heat and constant stirring is must.
Take care that halwa bubbles and splutters in the begining stage so stir carefully.
Use non-stick or ceramic pans to prevent burning and easy cooking.
If you like you can also add a tiny pinch off food colour to the paste along with saffron and cook.
You can also garnish with sliced almonds.
Add remaining 2 tbsp ghee in regular intervals.
