Indian Cooking Recipe : Badam Halwa

Ingredients :

1 cup almonds

Method :

Soak 1 cup of almonds in boiling water.
Peel off the skin of the almonds and grind the almonds in a mixer to make a fine paste.
Prepare sugar syrup by boiling the sugar with cup of water taken in a pan.
When the sugar syrup starts boiling, add the almond paste and mix well.
Mix the kesari powder with a little water and add to the boiling mixture.
