|"Kesariya Badam Burfi"|
"Kesariya Badam Burfi" is a very popular North Indian sweet which is prepared during the festive season of "Diwali"... its The Indian Festival of Lights.
Here is the simple and easy to follow recipe for "Kesariya Badam Burfi"
Badam / Almonds, shelled - 200 grams
Milk - 2 cups + half cup
Saffron - 1/2 teaspoon
Cardamom Powder - 1/4th teaspoon
Sugar - 3/4th cup.
Ghee - 5-6 tablespoons
Almonds, silvered - 4-5
Pistachios, silvered - 6-8
Soak Badam / Almonds overnight or at least for 6-8 hours, drain the water as it will get cloudy and wash thoroughly.
Keep the silvered nuts handy for garnish.
Take a square pan approximately 8X8 inches and line it with aluminium foil and smear some ghee over it and keep handy. (You van use a thali as well, I have used a cake tin and I have lined it withfoil as it makes it easier to remove once the Burfi is set)
Place the soaked and pealed Almonds / Badam in a grinder add around half a cup of milk and grind it into a fine paste.
The mixture will be very hot and pliable now, using a spatula or a metallic spoon spread it evenly. Sprinkle the silvered nuts for garnish and let it cool for at least an hour.
Once cool, remove the "Kesariya Badam Burfi" from the pan and using a sharp knife cut it criss cross into diamond shape.
