I thought I should plan the menu but somehow managed on the fly! One thing I did remember to make is their favorite Rava Kesari and the impending Microwave event forced me to make this too. This wasn't a last minute dish but last minute preparation! This month my lovely event is guest hosted by dear friend Mythreyee and the moment she choose Nuts, I knew I had to make this. This has been on my mind for so long and finally I came around making it.
The nutty feeling you get when you chew it is simply awesome. Infact to make it smooth, I soaked it in hot water for more than an hour or rather things worked out that way. I really don't think you got to soak it for so long.
Badam / Almond - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 - 1&1/2 cup
Milk - 1 cup 1 tbsp
Roasted Nuts for garnish.
Ghee - 2 tsp
Saffron threads - 4- 5 + Milk 2 tbsp
Hot water for blanching almonds
Method to prepare:
First run the almonds in the mixie, when you get the coarse powder, remove a tsp and grind the rest with milk to a smooth paste.
Micro for 10 mins, check in intervals of 2 - 4 minutes and keep stirring. You will get a good thick consistency which is more of a barfi and between a halwa.
Finally mix in the roasted nuts.
I liked the taste the coarse powder gave to the entire texture. And it was very creamy.
