 Badham Halwa, the richness of the dessert derived from its name. Authentic halwa recipe with very minimal ingredient listTongue.

Almonds are the star of nuts. Almonds are a bone-building food. These are a great source of healthy monounsaturated fats. Almonds can be consumed in many ways, like soaked and balanced almonds are good source to improve overall diet quality. 

Almond/Badham is a very good source of vitamins and rich contents. Badham milk is recommended in the night time for a good sleep. Badham improves immunity to the kids. Adding food color is completely your choice, here to get the perfect colour I have used food colour. Here for the presentation and for the look I have added a pinch of food colour. Usually I don’t prefer food color in my recipes Tongue. Check with the recipe for more details and do try and let me know how it turns.

 5. Mix them well and with in few mins it’ll get thick, in this stage halwa absorbs the ghee, you’ll not trace any ghee there in the halwa.. put the flame to medium or low stir continuously and slowly the ghee ooze out  from the halwa.. when you found the trace of ghee then switch of the flame… (If you are a beginner then try doing the last stage inflow flame..)

    • I used Nonstick pan.. i recommend you to try in nonstick pan..
    • If you add too much of milk it took more time to cook..
    • Adding sugar is your choice.. you can reduce the level to your taste buds..
    • Once the ghee trace in the last stage immediately switch off the flame…
