Badami Burfi | Almond Burfi | Karnataka recipes
Badam Burfi can prepared in many different ways. Traditionally we make the burfi with grinding the badam/Almonds with milk and takes about an hour to do it. I am making the burfi traditional way, though it takes long time to make, it tastes really good. It is worth all the effort.
