Preparation Time : 2-3 hours
Cooking Time : 20 min
|1 Cup||Badam / Almonds|
|2 tbsp||Saffron Milk (15-20 strands of saffron soaked in warm water)|
|3-4 Tbsp||Ghee / Clarified Butter|
|pinch of||Cardamom powder|
Step 1) Soak almonds in water for 2-3 hours and remove the skin just press it between thumb and index finger and slide to remove the skin or you can also soak the almonds in boiling water for 30 minutes to facilitate the process.
Step 2) Then grind it to a coarse paste by adding milk. Do not grind it to a very smooth paste.If you grind it a very fine paste then the texture of the halva wont be good, halwa should have a little grainy texture.This is the consistency which we need for making halva.
Step 4) Mix it completely and keep on stirring once the sugar dissolves completely add some saffron milk to get a nice color I have soaked few strands of saffron in 2 tbsp warm milk for 15 minutes.Mix it nicely in and keep on stirring. Prefer a non-stick pan to prevent the halva from sticking to the bottom.
Our Delicious Badam Halva is ready to be served warm or chilled.
