ALMOND MILK POWDER HALWA/BADAM HALWA WITH MILK POWDER/BLANCHED ALMOND RECIPES/INDIAN SWEETS/HALWA RECIPES/MILK POWDER USING SWEETS/SOUTH INDIAN FESTIVAL RECIPES/STEP BY STEP PICTURES


This is the one of the recipe which gave strain to my brain allot and kept me in confusion.First I planned to make some almond burphis..Again in that to make some thing innovative thought to add some milk powder instead of  sugar.But because of no pre-preparations it resulted like diabetic sweet.I mean I added less milk powder and it was very mild in sweet.I was disappointed with taste..After few hours again remembered badam halwa and used some sugar to balance the taste and cooked for few minutes..This time it tasted super delicious and perfectly resulted..This recipe process may looks  different with original almond halwa but here Iam explaining the two methods.One is which I followed and second is how to cook almond milk powder halwa instead of cooking like me..So,read Instructions of HOW I COOKED first carefully and then  Instructions(HOW TO COOK)..Hope you won`t disappoint with today`s beautiful post..Thank you.

HOW I COOKED

First I soaked almonds in cool water.and in the next morning I prepared this recipe.But,I suggest to soak in hot water.

Heated a non stick pan with 1/2 cup of milk  and let it boil.Then  added almond+ground paste and cook in low flame til it looses raw smell.May be 4-5 minutes.

Then add milk powder +cardamom powder r and again mix continuously until it starts thickening..

Once it turns hard(when you can`t stir) turn off and  2 tbsp of ghee.Apply some ghee to plate and place halwa on plate.

Shaped it like square with spoon and cut into pieces.after few minutes you can separate the pieces.

This is how I cooked first and I got good shaped pieces too.But tastes less in sweet.

So,again I heated pan with half cup of sugar+1/4 cup of water and boiled in high flame..after 5-6 minutes I added above almond milk powder mixture into this and mixed for 5 minutes in low flame.

Then turned off.This time it tasted good same like other halws it was good in consistency too.
