It's getting cold here in North India, and one feels like having foods which have a "warming effect" all the time, if you have been reading my blog, you would know that I have a very sweet tooth and cannot live without my fix of meetha after meals, yesterday after dinner I wanted something quick, simple, easy and delicious, so this"shortcut" halwa was born.Every bite of this halwa was sheer delight, so delicious that it becomes hardly possible to discover it's basis.To make this you need-
- Almonds-1 cup
- Clarified butter(desi ghee)-3-4 tbsp
- Full cream mik-2 cups
- Sugar-1/2 cup or acc. to taste
- Cardamom-a pinch
Grind whole almonds finely in a blender, heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan and add powdered almonds to it, stirring all the time on a slow flame till almonds turn light brown and fragrant, add cardamom and milk, cook till thick, will take approx. 15-20 minutes. Enjoy delicious, piping hot halwa.
