Nothing could be better than a healthy Badam Halwa for this Diwali.


1/2 cup almonds, soaked overnight

1/3 cup milk

4 tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder

3 tbsp ghee

For the garnish

2 to 3 almonds, peeled and sliced


Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the almonds. Leave aside for 5 minutes.

Drain and remove the skins of the almonds.

Purée the almonds with 4 tablespoons of milk to a smooth paste in a blender.

Heat the ghee in a non-stick kadhai and add the almond purée. Cook over a slow flame while stirring continuously till the mixture turns golden brown (approx. 15 minutes).

Boil together the remaining milk with 4 tablespoons of water, add to the almond mixture and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the sugar and cardamom powder and cook till the sugar has dissolved, while stirring continuously.

Serve hot, garnished with the almonds.
