Badam Burfi

For festivals like Diwali and other occassions I make this simple, tasty, and nourishing sweet. Most people like badam for its nutrients and this burfi will be  a delicious item. Easy to make too. What is needed is a little patience.

  1. Badam              200 gms
  2. Sugar                400gms
  3. Ghee                 250gms
  4. Kesar pwdr       1/4 tsp
  5. Nutmeg pwdr   1/4tsp
  6. Saffron flr         1 pinch
  7. Milk                  1 cup
  8. Soak the badam in boiling water for 30 minutes. Peel the skin by sqeezing and pressing the kernel out. Grind the badam kernels in a mixer to a smooth paste adding the milk. Take a sauce pan, heat 1/4 cup water adding 400gms sugar. Let the sugar melt. Stir slowly in medium heat. Now add the badam kernel rind, add kesar powder, slowly adding the ghee spoon by spoon( don't put all the ghee at once). Put saffron flower and nutmeg powder, stir non-stop, till the consistency becomes thick and comes unstuck in the pan around. Pour it onto a greased tray and cut into desired shape. You can make 40-50 medium size burfis
