Badam Angoor

Diwali , The Festival of Lights , comes with loads of fun & festivity. Gifts , sweets & dry fruits are exchanged and there is generally a sense of excitement in the air. Varieties of sweets are prepared in homes & everybody indulges in the choicest treats.
I prepared this sweet for Diwali , decided to present this badam sweet in a different form & christened it Badam Angoor. Be warned , it is quite addictive & leaves you wanting more.


Almonds - 1 cup
sugar - 1 cup
milk - 1 cup
Sweet almond essence - 2 drops
Water - 1/2 cup

Method :
  • Wash the Almonds & bring to boil in a couple of cups of water. The skin of the almonds loosens up. Put off the gas & drain out the water . Peel off the skins.
  • Blend these Almonds with milk to a smooth paste.
  • Take sugar in a heavy bottomed pan & pour water to cover the sugar. Boil to get a one - string syrup.
  • Pour in the almond paste & stir till it leaves the sides of the pan. Add the essence & put off Flame.
  • When it cools a little , make marble size balls & decorate with silver wark & Sprinkle toasted almond flakes.
