Almond Fudge / Badam Halwa......with Almond meal

Almond Halwa
Last month we had some visitors from India and we were delighted to get a packet of Kaju Katli from one of our favorite shops in Bangalore.......Needless to say that it got over in a few minutes leaving us with more craving for something similar to that....

I had no other option than going into my pantry and there was this packet of almond meal that I had kept for making some almond cake....hmmmmmmmm, that taste of kaju katli was still there in my tongue and it changed my mind from trying a cake to this lovely almond halwa........
Sweet cravings are something you need to get a hold of ..Right ?.....
Ya I know that, but cant resist at times like these.....

The outcome was perfect and satisfying for all of us...

Here is how I made it....


Ingredients
  1. Almond Meal                   - 2 cups   [ 300gm packet]
  2. Sugar                               3/4 cup [ You can increase up to 1 cup if you prefer]
  3. Water                              1/4 cup
  4. Cardamom Powder       1/2 tsp  [ optional ]
  5. Ghee                                1 Tbsp
  6. Milk                                 - 3/4 cup
Preparation
  1. Heat water in a non stick pan and add sugar to it.
  2. Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. 
  3. Add cardamom powder and bring it to boil.
  4. Now add the almond meal and keep stirring until everything comes together. 
  5. It will be crumbled at this stage.
  6. Add ghee and mix well followed by the addition of milk.
  7. Keep stirring the mixture until it starts to separate from the sides of the pan. It takes about 10 mins.
  8. Keep a plate greased with little ghee and transfer the mixture to it.
  9. Once cooled down you can shape it as you wish and start enjoying.

Note : It can be kept refrigerated for long.

  18. Yum...it looks so rich and full of ghee, but it looks like you didn't use that much ghee at all. Nice way to make a dessert relatively healthy, and still delicious.
