Ever since my childhood, I have been encouraged to have a tablespoon of this halwa every morning in the winters. I used to look forward to winters because of this morning ritual. This is a rich recipe and one can't have too much of it at one time -but it is delicious nevertheless. It has been my all time favourite winter recipe.

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
