Almonds /badham -- 1 cup
Sugar -- 1 cup
Milk -- 3/4 cup
Salt -- a pinch
Cardamom Powder -- a pinch
Saffron strands -- 4 to 5 (optional)
Saffron colour -- a pinch
Ghee -- 2 tbsp
Method : Soak the almonds for 2 hours or boil the almonds for 3 minutes and peel the skin. In a blender /mixie add the blanched almonds,milk and grind it coarsely (like rava ) .The batter should be in running cocnsistency like u grind for dosa. Now add the batter and the salt ,sugar in a non stick karahi and combine well. Continue to cook this mixture in medium flame and add a tbsp of ghee when it starts bubbling. Keep on stirring this mixture else it would get burnt. U may want to turn low the heat a little bit. Stir the mixture again for 3 more minutes and add the saffron strands and combine well. Add the remaining ghee as well. Continue to stir and add the saffron colour as well. Turn off the heat when the mixture starts leaving the sides and the ghee starts coming out. It took me almost 10 minutes on the whole to make this halwa (apart from soaking n grinding) .Garnish with nuts of ur choice and Njoy !!!
