Homemade Almond Powder

Almond called Badam in Hindi and mostly used in dessert and sweets as flavor, garnishing and taste. Even you can make sweet and savory both types of dishes with almonds.




Today I shared homemade almond power recipe with my readers. For this you have to grind the almonds as powdered form and sieve it. Fresh homemade almond powder is ready to use for almond cookies, bread, cakes and gravies. Almond flour is often used as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour in cooking and baking.
While the almond is often eaten on its own, raw or toasted, it is also a component of various dishes. Almonds are available in many forms, such as whole, sliced (flaked, slivered), and as flour. Almonds yield almond oil and can also be made into almond butter or almond milk.
The almond contains about 26% carbohydrates and may therefore be made into flour for cakes and cookies (biscuits) for low-carbohydrate diets. A standard serving of almond flour, 1 cup, contains 20 grams of carbohydrates, of which 10 g is dietary fiber, for a net of 10 g of carbohydrate per cup. This makes almond flour very desirable for use in cake and bread recipes by people on carbohydrate-restricted diets.



Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E. About 20 percent of raw almond is high quality protein, a third of which are essential amino acids. They are also rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, essential minerals and monounsaturated fat. Potential health benefits, which have not been scientifically validated, include improved complexion and possibly a lower risk of cancer.
