Badam almond burfi, an Indian sweet
¾ cup almonds
1 cup hot water
¾ cup sugar
½ cup water
2 tbsp milk
4 cardamom powdered
2 tbsp ghee/clarified butter
*Tip: if you are not a fan of almonds, you can use cashew nuts instead!
Peel the skin of the almonds - to do this, pour boiling water in a bowl with the almonds and soak for 5 mins. Then rinse the almonds with cold water and start removing the skin.
Pat dry the peeled almonds and set aside to dry.
Once dry, transfer the almonds to a blender and blend to coarse powder.
Prepare the sugar syrup - to do this add sugar and water to a pan and stir continuously on medium heat. Boil the sugar syrup till it forms a string consistency.
Add the almond powder, milk and cardamom powder to the sugar syrup and mix continuously keeping heat on low to medium.
Once the mixture begins to boil, add a tbsp of ghee.
Mix continuously until the mixture starts to separate from the pan.
Transfer the almond dough onto baking paper and let it cool for 5 minutes (Don’t leave it for too long as the dough will harden).
Add the remaining ghee and knead the dough for a minute until smooth. (Take caution as the dough will be hot)
Roll the dough with a rolling-pin to a thickness of your choice and then cut the dough into bite size squares or a shape of your preference (traditionally they are cut into diamond shapes).
*Tip: You can decorate the burfi with silver leaf/silver vark and chopped almonds on top.
