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.

Ingredients for badam burfi :

  • 1 cup Almonds (ಬಾದಾಮಿ )
  • 1½ to 2 cup Sugar(ಸಕ್ಕರೆ)
  • 3 to 4 TBSP ghee(ತುಪ್ಪ)
  • 3/4 cup milk(ಹಾಲು)
  • ⅛ tsp Saffron(soak in milk)(ಕೇಸರಿ, ಹಾಲಲ್ಲಿ ನೆನಸಿಟ್ಟಿರಿ)
  • 2 to 3 cup Water(ನೀರು)

Yields 35 to 40 pieces

  1. Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready.
  2. Boil the water and add almonds and turn off the heat. Leave it for 1 to 2 minutes and then drain the water.
  3. Then squeeze the almond and remove the skin and repeat for all almonds and keep it ready.
  4. Grind the de skinned almonds along with milk to a fine paste.
  5. Add this paste to a thick bottom pan, add sugar, add saffron soaked milk, 2 TBSP ghee and mix it well.
  6. Turn on the heat to medium low, keep stirring the mix to avoid burning.
  7. After 15 minutes add 1 to 2 TBSP ghee
  8. Keep on stirring until the sweet mix leaves the bottom of the pan.
  9. Transfer the mix onto the greased plate. Smear little ghee to a flat bottom cup, gently rub it on the mix.
  10. Once the mix cools down a little, cut it to a desired shape and size using a pizza cutter or with a knife.
