Badam ka halwa is a regal dessert fit for kings. A super delicious, melt in the mouth kind of desert, it has a soft, fudge-like texture. One of the all-time favourite recipes, though not too complicated this one takes love and time to make. Badam ka halwa is made for all special occasions and sometimes for no reason at all.
Heat a thick bottomed pan on a low flame.
Put 1 tbsp ghee along with 6 tbsp almond powder.
Roast them well till you get an aroma.
Add 1/2 cup milk, stirring it well and let it boil.
Add 1 tbsp Khoa and 1.5 tbsp sugar.
Stir properly using a spatula so that the sugar is mixed evenly with the almond powder and let it simmer.
After 23 mins when the mixture is reduced to half, add the soaked saffron solution.
The mixture will thicken and start to come together.
Add 3 tsp of chopped almonds.
The Halwa will thicken and begin to leave the sides of the pan.
You should even be able to see holes in the halwa when you move it around.
Stir and cook the halwa till it starts lumping around itself and starts to leave the sides of the pan.
