A delicacy rooted in Indian tradition, Badam Halwa is indispensable for celebrations of any kind. It is good to have on normal days too! Infact, grandmas unfailingly advice their grandchildren to have a spoonful of this wholesome halwa every morning, all through the winter. This is one delicious morning ritual nobody would want to skip! This all-time favourite winter recipe is, of course, a bit rich, so you cannot have more than a few spoons at a time. Worry not, you can stash this safely into the freezer and have some everyday, especially in the winters. In this particular recipe, we have added a bit of whole wheat flour to get a crunchy effect and also prevent the formation of ghee on top of the halwa, so don’t forget to add it.

Hi Tarla, Badam ka Halwa turned out very well. It was so easy to make. But I had to use more than 1/3 cup of milk to grind almond to smooth paste. I had soaked almonds in water for more than 4 hours. YM
