Winter means loads of almonds and other dry fruits based recipes for me. They keep my kiddos full of energy and good proteins. Although I give them in moderated servings only.
So this quick almond fudge (barfi/halva) is basically microwave recipe. You can save loads of time of stirring with this recipe and somehow you will get more flavor of almonds in this way(I felt).
2 Cups full of Almonds (I took pre skin peeled white ones)
2 Cups of full fat milk
1 Tin condensed milk
1 Tin evaporated milk
1 Cup sugar
6 Tbsp desi ghee(butter oil) (best quality)
1/4 Tsp saffron strands good quality
2 Tbsp green cardamom powder
4 Tsps kevda water/rose water
1- Soak almonds over night in lukewarm water.
2- In the morning wash them well (peel if they are not pre peeled).
3- Grind them with 2 cups of full fat milk into finest paste possible.
4- Now add all things to this almond paste and mix very well in a big microwavable bowl.
5- Now the trick. Grease all corners of this bowl very well so that paste not get spilled out.
6- Now keep this bowl into microwave on high for 8 minutes.
7- Take out and stir well. After 5-6 rounds it will be done.
8- Spread in greased tray, let it cool and keep in fridge immediately. After 2 hour cut into slices.
9- You can store it like halva also.
