Badam Halwa


Hi all, Iam back with badam Halwa. I got this recipe from my friend Abitha. Its a lovely recipe and adding MTR mix gives a very rich taste. Try it folks!!! and Iam sure u will love it. This is my entry for RCI Tamil festivals:Diwali , started by Lakshmik and hosted by Viji of VCuisine

Ingredients

Almond paste- 2 1/2 cups( If u are using fresh almonds soak overnight , peel the skin and grind to a paste. If using readymade sliced almonds , just grind with little water to form a paste.The paste can be very fine or a bit coarse like rava consistency ,according to ur taste.)
Milk- 2 1/2 cups
MTR badam feast- 1 1/4 cup
sugar- 3 to 4 tbsp or according to ur taste.
ghee- 1/4 cup or acc to ur taste.

Method

Heat ghee in a non stick pan and fry the ground almond paste in a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes.
Mix the MTR powder with milk. Add this and sugar to the almond paste. keep stirring for 20 to 25 minutes till the halwa comes together as a single mass, without sticking to the pan.
This can be refrigerated upto 3 weeks. Have fun making this for diwali.

MTR now has Badam Halwa powder in a packet. I would love to know if any one has tried that. Also, if you are using fresh almonds, I found a quick way to peel the skin. Just boil water, then add almonds with skin and turn off the stove within 30-40 secs. Pour out the water. Now you can remove skin from Badam in just a few mins, the skin slides off very easily. I have tried the overnight soaking method and it's takes much longer in my experience.
