Badam Halwa

Ingredients to make Badam Halwa

  • 200 gms - badam
  • 2 cups - sugar
  • 2 cups +1\4 cup - ghee
  • 1 cup + 1\2 cup - full cream milk
  • a big pinch - saffron

How to make Badam Halwa

  1. Soak badam in hot water for 30 mins, drain the water and peel the skin.Grind it into a thick paste using 1 cup of milk.
  2. Soak saffron in 1\2 cup of lukewarm milk, mix it slightly and keep it covered.
  3. In a thick bottom kadai mix badam paste and sugar, stir over low flame till its starts to bubble.
  4. When the bubbles decrease, add the saffron milk. When the halwa starts sticking to the kadai, start adding melted ghee, 1\4 cup at a time.
  5. The ghee gets absorbed into the halwa at once. Keep on adding 1\4 cup of ghee and stir till we are done with the whole amount of ghee (2 1\4 cups).
  6. At this point, the halwa thickens and starts oozing with ghee. Switch off the flame, give a good stir for a minute and let it cool.
  7. Transfer it into a clean container and serve as desired.
My Tip: Good quality badam, sugar and desi ghee enhances the taste and texture of this halwa. I have used pure cow’s ghee of a reputed brand. We can also use homemade ghee if possible. The colour of the halwa is pale yellow. Yes, it is not bright yellow or orange in colour. I have used a big pinch of saffron for colour and to enhance the aroma of the halwa. If the saffron is pure, when mixed with milk, gives a pale yellow colour and the saffron strands retain their colour. If the saffron is impure, then the milk becomes orange or bright yellow in colour and the saffron strands becomes pale. So, if you are using good amount of saffron and still the halwa looks pale, do not worry but be happy that your saffron is pure! For the above said quantity of badam,ghee,sugar,we will get more than 1 1\4 kg(appr) of badam halwa.If we pack individual servings of about 50 gms,we can have 25 servings\packs.
