Burfi’s are very popular sweets in most of the festivals of India.Burfi’s can be made with variety of ingredients and trust me all tastes heavenly.
Badam/ Almond Burfi is one of them and it’s made with Almond flour.
Burfi’s can replace Candies and kids love them..
Believe me you can’t stop at one.. easily can have 5 to 6 pieces.
Badam Burfi is Rich in taste and good for health as Almonds are less fat compared to cashew’s Burfi.
1 cup – almonds / badam,
1 cup – granulated sugar,
1/2 cup -water,
1/4 cup – whole milk,
1 teaspoon – cardamom powder,
2 to 4 tablespoons – ghee/clarified butter
Soak almonds/badam for 2 hours or 15 minutes in hot water.
Peel the skin by gently squeezing the soaked almonds.
Place them on napkins and pay dry.
In a mixer, grind them dry to smooth powder.
In a heavy bottomed pan or non stick pan,
Prepare sugar syrup by putting sugar and water . Stir occasionally until u get one string consistency (if u take little syrup in your finger tip and stretch using thumb ,should see a string).
Now, add powdered almonds/badam and mix well. When it starts bubbling,add milk,cardamom and ghee.
Keep stirring continuously until it absorbs all the moisture and collects to one side like a huge ball.
Switch of the stove and spread on a greased (with ghee) parchment paper to cool for 10 minutes.
Knead the dough slightly with your hand and using a roller roll into 1/2 inch circle.
Cut into desired shapes.
Badam / Almond Burfi is ready to Enjoy!!
Patience!! Patience !! Is the key .You have to really keep stirring until you get the right consistency which takes 10 to 15 minutes of stirring after adding milk.
