Hello all! It has been long time since I posted and I had taken a mini break also. I would put up my travel post soon but 9th June happens to be my blog’s first anniversary which few weeks back seemed a distant dream. So thought why not share something sweet with you. My today’s recipe is badam barfi or almond fudge. I would show you how its made in my household and I don’t claim to be expert at all and hence my recipes here are very simple everyday cooking. Enough of talking and hope you like this badam barfi.
1 cup almonds
½ cup sugar
2 tbsp milk
1tsp poppy seeds, (optional)
1tsp cardamom powder (optional)
Dry grind the almonds roughly to a slight powdery form. Take a pan and heat 1 tbsp ghee, once it melts add almonds and stir it for 3-4 minutes till lovely aroma comes out. Make sure it doesn’t turn too brown. Add sugar and stir it again till sugar is mixed in almonds. Add milk now and stir it till it becomes bit lump and leaves the side of pan. The barfi should not be too brown and it should look bit light.
Take a greased thali or plate and pour the barfi mixture on it. Smoothen it with spoon and sprinkle poppy seeds and cardamom powder if you wish. Let it set at room temperature. Then cut it in desired shape and store in airtight container. It would remain good till 7 days but I am sure with this yummy almond barfi no one would wait till it finishes. I am sorry as I couldn't take pics of stirring almonds powder in pan and so skipped to next part of setting up the barfi in plate.
Hope you all do try it and let me know what you think. Poppy seeds or khus khus is my favourite and hence I use it in almost all of my sweets.
