Ingredients to make Badam / Almond Barfi

  • Badam / almond ....1 katori
  • Milk...about 1/2 cup
  • sugar..2&1/4 katori
  • ghee..minimum 1 katori
  • elaichi powder. ..1tsp
  • badam. .10 ..halved / flakes for garnish

How to make Badam / Almond Barfi

  1. Wash and soak almonds overnight or for about 2 hours in hot water. Remove the skin and wash again. Grind to a fine paste with just sufficient quantity of milk. Keep aside Badam paste.
  2. Melt the ghee in a pan, let it become hot.
  3. Grease a thali / plate and keep aside.
  4. Transfer badam paste and sugar into a heavy bottom, non stick deep vessel. Mix well and keep aside for 5 minutes.
  5. After 5 minutes, heat the vessel and keep stirring the mixture continuously on a medium flame.
  6. Soon the mixture will start thickening.
  7. From this stage onwards, keep adding little by little the hot melted ghee at regular intervals. You will note that the ghee will keep getting absorbed into the badam/sugar mixture.
  8. Continue until the mixture starts leaving the sides of the vessel and any excess ghee will be visible. Meaning, it will no longer be able to be absorbed into the mixture.
  9. Put oft the gas, mix well and very quickly transfer the mixture into the well greased thali or plate.
  10. Tap the thali/ plate so that mixture spreads uniformly all over the plate. Smoothen gently using a greased spoon.
  11. Sprinkle Badam halves/ flakes all over as garnish.
  12. After about 5 minutes, when it is still hot, almost setting, using a greased knife, cut into desired shape.
  13. Keep aside until it is fully set. Gently take out the Badam barfi pieces and store well.

My Tip:

Important to use hot melted ghee. Have to be careful of the stage at which the mixture is transferred into greased thali. If it is overcooked then it will be difficult to cut. Best if a tad bit under done I would say, as you will still be able to cut into desired shape and will still be soft, melt in the mouth product.
