Almond Candy

Dont give me looks hearing the title.This is just the basic badam halwa rolled in the shape of candy to feast my eyes :)
We were travelling to a friends place in St. Louis & I wanted to prepare some sweets to take to their home and thus ending up preparing the badam halwa.

  • Whole badam(almonds) - 1 cup
  • Sugar                           - 1 cup
  • Milk                              - a few tablespoons
  • Ghee(melted butter)       -  as per your taste
  • Cardomon Powder          - a pinch (optional)
  • Soak the almonds(badam) in normal water overnight or hot water for minimum of one hour.
  • Peel the skin after that and keep them ready.
  • Grind the almonds with sugar with as little milk as possible to a fine paste.(Use milk just to cover the almonds)
  • Take a kadai and keep in medium flame .Add few drops of ghee and pour in the grounded paste.
  • Keep stirring the mixture(this might take nearly 10-15 minutes). Take care as the mixture will spill all over.
  • After a few minutes the texture will start to change and you will notice the badam will leave the sides.
  • This stage add few more table spoons of ghee and the cardoman powder and keep stirring  for 5 more minutes.
  • Take off the flame to have your badam halwa.
Serving suggestions
  • You can take the halwa and eat them directly with a spoon.
  • You can pour them into greased plate and cut them into desired shape after it cools down.
  • Peeling of badams will be easier when they are very tender.
  • Always keep the flame in medium or lower than that. Increasing the heat will burn the badam.
