Badam Burfi is an easy and quick Diwali sweet. This version can be done in a jiffy in a microwave. So u dont have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Unlike the traditional method u dont have to worry about getting the sugar syrup consistency correctly. Is that not good news?

Now to the recipe…

Ingredients:

  • Almonds (Peeled) – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1 1/4 cup
  • Milk – 1/2 cup
  • Ghee – 2tbsp
  • Saffron Food Colour – a pinch(Optional)

Method:

  • Peel the skin of almonds by soaking it in boiling water for 20 mins. I used blanched almonds so skipped this step. Grind it with 1/2 cup of milk into a smooth paste.

  • Take a wide open microwave safe bowl and add the almond paste, sugar and mix well. Microwave it in high power for 6 mins stirring it frequently. The 2nd & 3rd pics are 3 mins and 6 mins respectively.

  • Add food colour at this stage ( if using) and mix well. Microwave it for another 2 minutes. Add ghee and mix. Microwave it for a few seconds. It will be thick. Tranfer this to a greased plate and slice it when it still warm.

Tips:

  1. Do not add more milk, else the paste will become watery and will take a long time to make the burfi.
  2. The timings purely depend upon your microwave. It might take a few minutes more or less. Mine exactly took 9 minutes.
  3. Be careful for the first few minutes, as it might bubble and spill out. Keep a keen eye.
  4. I used saffron food colour by mixing it with a few drops of milk. You can skip this if you want.
