Badam Halwa is a very easy to make yet very tasty & rich sweet that is made in the homes in India at the time of Holi, Diwali, Lakshmi Pooja or any special occasion. This sweet should be made with pure ghee, the more ghee added to the dish, the more tasty it is & the more smooth the texture of the halwa becomes. The skin of the almond is peeled & soaked in milk & ground to a coarse paste & then later cooked in pure ghee. The awesome aroma of ghee fills the home once your done preparing this dish. This recipe comes from my grandmother's kitchen. This is how she has been preparing this dish for more than 40 years. I have seen her doing it so I know the perfect texture & consistency of the halwa. Each time my grandmother makes & serves this dish with love, I never get enough of it. So, I have posted a very detailed recipe. Do try it out & let me know how it turned out for you.
