Badam Halwa - Rajasthani Special

Badam halwa or Indian almond fudge, which is highly delicious and definitely a quick sweet to make.This month's  Indian Cooking Challenge,a monthly event where we cook dishes from various regions of India, Srivalli challenged us with a simple and hasslefree badam halwa suggested by Vaishali.Seriously since am doing my internship i dont have much time to give a try to this halwa earlier until today, eventhough this halwa is super easy to make, apart from stirring. I soaked the almonds yesterday and finished making this halwa this morning. Loved the simplicity of this dish, we tried this sweet with quarter cup of almonds hence the quantity of other ingredients may sounds very easy to remember. Nothing much is needed to make this swet, obviously you can make this halwa easily within few minutes if you have sudden guests at home.

I soaked the almonds overnite to deskin them easily, if you dont have enough time to soak,just go for the microwave cooking. This sweet is super easy to make and no need of saffron, other nuts etc etc. Ghee, sugar and a pinch of cardamom powder makes this incredible halwa. We loved it to the core and i must say a big thanks to Vaishali and Srivalli for suggesting this incredible sweet.
