Winter Special: Badaam Ka Halwa

A sweet delicacy made with almonds and brown sugar. It's not as sickly sweet as most other Pakistan delicacies, thus more enjoyable. Its soft, warm and chewy.

The recipe given below serves one person.


Almonds 100gm
Brown Sugar 25 gm
White Sugar 25 gm
Ghee (clarified butter) 2 tbsp
Cardamon 2 to 3
Water/Milk 1 cup (I used milk)


Soak the almonds in water overnight. Then remove the peel and grind/blend them in water. In a pan, heat the ghee and add the cardamons till they've turned light brown. Now add the almond paste. Add sugar and mix well for about 10-13 minutes and continuously keep stirring on medium-low heat. And voila, it's ready! Serve warm.
