How to make Badam Halwa
My Tip:1. Do not boil the almonds for more than a minute, otherwise, it will become too soft. 2. You can reduce or increase the quantity of sugar if you want to. 3. Cook only on a low flame. Do not increase the flame at any point of time. 4. Cook the halwa only on a heavy bottomed pan or a non stick pan, otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pan & burn the halwa. 5. I have also made this halwa with just 3 tbsp ghee & it still tasted very good. So, if you are calorie conscious, then you can reduce the quantity of ghee :) when you reduce the ghee, your halwa will not turn out glossy but it will still taste good. 6. Add the ground almond mixture only after the sugar in the water completely dissolves.
