kesar badam halwa

This kesar badam halwa is “the”king among the other well appreciated desserts. Badam is a high energy food that is more comforting and satisfying when taken specially during this winter days.At shops we can see the badam halwa mostly in small packets rolled in butter papers. Even now I can see these packets of badam halwa sold at my home town at that particular sweet shop where I use to buy. It’s all because of its unique taste and texture it stands tall among all other special occasion desserts. kesar badam halwaFor me I don’t add any colour while making this badam halwa because the radiant colour from the saffron itself will do the job. I don’t add cardamom powder for this halwa as we are adding saffron. When we add both the particular flavour needed for the sweet will not be there. The consistency to be noted is that at the end the halwa will leave the sides that’s when you have to switch off the stove. Now you can enjoy this wonderful sweet following the below method.

For this badam halwa I usually don’t add any cardamom powder. The sugar added can be increased according to the sweet level. If you don’t want this much ghee you can reduce but it will be little dry. No need to add any yellow colour because the colour from the saffron itself gives good colour.
