Ingredients
  • 1/2cupAlmonds
  • 1/2cupSugar
  • 1cupWater
  • 1/4cupMilk
  • 4tbspGhee
  • Big Pinch of Saffron/Kesar
  • Big Pinch of Cardamom Powder
  • Small Pinch of Yellow Food Color
Instructions
  1. Soak the almonds in hot water for 15-20 mins and remove the skin.
  2. Grind them into a thick coarse paste without adding a lot of water. The paste should be thick.
  3. Meanwhile, soak saffron in warm milk and set aside.
  4. In a pan, add sugar to the water and stir it until completely dissolved.
  5. Next add the ground almond paste and stir it quickly.
  6. Make sure there are no lumps. Add cardamom powder at this stage.
  7. Next add the saffron soaked milk and mix it well.
  8. Now add a tbsp of ghee and keep stirring the mixture.
  9. Everytime it bubbles, add a tbsp of ghee and continue stirring it non-stop.
  10. After 15-20 mins, the halwa starts coming together. Add more ghee if needed.
  11. When all the ghee is absorbed and the halwa leaves the sides of the pan, remove it from heat.
  12. Once cooled down, store it in an airtight container. Halwa will set and become thicker as it cools down. Store it in fridge for longer shelf life.
