Badam Ka Halwa/ Almond Pudding


Today I post “Badam Ka Halwa” in the Blogging Marathon 20, under Ganesh Jayanti special. This festival is celebrated in whole but especially more attraction in Maharashtra regional. Under this recipe, we used blanched almond paste which cooked in ghee and milk for preparing Halwa form. Its taste is really amazing and you can made almond fudge or badam barfi also with same thick consistency cooked almonds mixture, for fudge just grease the plate and spread equally on plate. Cut it into diamond or square shape.
Almonds are the king of nuts which is great source of calcium, 26% carbohydrates, Vitamin E and they are also rich of minerals and dietary fiber.
Potential health benefits, which have not been scientifically validated, include improved complexion and possibly a lower risk of cancer. Preliminary research associates consumption of almonds with elevating blood levels of high density lipoproteins and lowering low density lipoproteins.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serving: 3 Cup approx.
Ingredients:
1 Cup Blanched Almonds, Peeled
2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Ghee
1 Tsp. Cardamom Powder

Directions:
How to Blanch the Almonds
Add the 1 cup almonds in fully boiling water just for 5 minutes, then pour this water on almonds and drain out. Peel the almonds one by one by using just thumb.
Combine blanch almonds and 1 cup Milk in mixer and make a smooth fine paste. Now heat the ghee in non-stick pan and add almond paste in it. Stir continuously on medium flame. After 10-15 minutes add remaining milk in it and stir continuously. 
Cook till to little color change. Add sugar and cardamom powder, it’s up to your taste. Cook 10 minutes more and add more ghee if required. Serve hot Badam Halwa on special occasion or in festival days.
