Deepavali Sweets – Soft Badam Halwa
How to make soft Home made Badam Halwa
1 Cup Almonds soaked
1 Cup Sugar
¾ Cup Ghee
¾ Cup Milk
Pinch of salt
Remove the skin from almonds and grind them to a coarse sandy paste adding just a few drops of milk.
Take a heavy kadai and add the measured amount of milk and saffron
And in a few minutes add the ground almond paste and stir in
As it cooks add some ghee and then the sugar.
The mixture loosens but keep stirring on medium low flame and add all the ghee little by little.
When the paste starts to pull away from the sides, switch off and allow to cool
Serve warm Badam Halwa!
My favorite memory of Badam Halwa is when my grandmother made it for Diwali and waiting to taste it on Diwali morning after bursting crackers,,Whats your fav Diwali memory?
