Badam Burfi/ Almond Burfi and Diwali wishes!

It's sweets time for Diwali ! I would like to share an easy burfi recipe with you all.
Most of the badam burfi's will tell you to soak the badam for few hours and peel  the skin. I really don't have the patience to peel the skin of 1 whole cup pf almonds.

Here is a very easy badam burfi which can be made with no fuss, no peeling, no soaking.

Get ready:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup milk powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • a pinch saffron soaked in 1 tbsp warm milk
  • 2 tbsp ghee/ clarified butter
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder


  • Coarsley or finely powder the dry almonds with skin ina blender or spice grinder.
  • Mix the milk powder with the powdered badam and set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, add the sugar and 1/4 cup water.
  • MAke the sugar syrup to 2 string consistency. It will take about 10 mins.
  • Now add the badam, milk powder and mix well on moderate flame.
  • Add the  ghee little by little and cook till the mixture doesn't stick to the pan for about 5 mins.
  • Grease a plate and pour the badam mixture in it.
  • Smoothen the surface with a greased spatula.
  • Let it cool, cut into diamond shapes and serve.
It soft, rich and perfect for the festive season.

Wishing you and your family a happy and prosperous diwali!
