Badam Halwa

I start my blog with a sweet dish ;)

3 cups of Badam
1 can condensed milk
1 cup sugar (can be varied per taste)
2 ounces honey
1 slab butter
orange color
few strands of kesri
1 teaspoon milk

Soak strands of kesri in milk, add the color

Boil 3 cups of Badam for 20 minutes, peel the shells. Drain water completely
In a food processor add the badam, condensed milk...Blend to a texture of idli batter(coarse). If its hard to grind, add couple of tablespoons milk.

In a non stick pan melt sugar, add the badam mixture, butter, honey and milk mixture and keep mixing on low heat until the raw smell of almond is gone you achieve halwa texture...More butter can be added to enhance the taste ;)
