Rich Badam Halwa (Almond Dessert)

(Click image for enlarged view)

This weekend we had invited some friends for dinner and I wanted to make something easy and special to celebrate with them. I bookmarked this recipe long back from Ayeesha and got a chance to prepare it today.Thank you Ayeesha for sharing this wonderful recipe.

This badam halwa is basically rich in texture with a mild sweetness. Grinded almonds are simmered in some creamy milk with a touch of cardamom flavor. Its got a divine taste and I am sure you will enjoy it.

Preparation Time: 10 time
Cooking Time: 13 min
Serves: 4

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup badam (almonds)
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup full fat milk
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 4 to 5 finely chopped almonds for garnishing

Cooking Procedure

Soak almonds for 1 hour. Then make a fine smooth paste with some milk as required.

Take a large a microwave safe bowl, mix all the above ingredients except ghee with this badam paste, stir nicely. Microwave on high for 10 min. Stir every 3 minutes. After 10 min once it begins thick add the ghee and stir nicely. And microwave for 3 min stiring it every 1 min.

Then transfer it to a serving bowl, granish with chopped almonds and put it in refridegerator. Serve chilled. Your badam halwa is ready.

Note:
  1. I did not remove the skin of the badam it is optional.
  2. I used brown but if you are using normal then adjust to your taste buds, as normal sugar is sweeter.

Thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog, this recipe looks amazing and very easy to prepare! I was wondering if you are able to explain how to put the drop down menu in my blog like you have on the right hand side of yours, that lets you organise your recipes? I have one on mine but it does not look neat like yours does.
