Badam Cake

                    This is my 300th post.Again the same story. Full time employment and a very fundamental idea about how to use a basic model of a camera and the same with the computer. It is surprising to me to have traversed a long path ,only with the passion of pursuing my interest in cooking, reading and writing.Moreover there cannot be a better panacea than keeping ourselves always engaged.

                   Mysore Pak, the evergreen sweet was earmarked for the 300th post but it turned out to be Badam Cake.This Badam Cake is easy to make but has a rich taste.

                   My daughter, an expert in this sweet happened to be the supervisor as this Deepavali was celebrated at her home with her family.This also is the first Deepavali for the sweet little Prince Arjee and the fifth for the beloved Jiji. 

Badam Cake


Badam   1 cup.
Sugar   1 - 1.25 cup.
Ghee  2 tbsp.
Cardamom Powder
Milk  1/4 cup.

Method :

1. Soak Badam in hot water for 1 hour.The skin comes out easily and remove it.

2. In a mixer, grind the Badam with the milk to a fine paste.In the end, add sugar and blend for a minute.

3. Heat the Ghee in a thick Kadai, add the blended Badam and Sugar. Keep on stirring on a medium flame till the mixture becomes thick and starts leaving the sides of the Kadai.

4. Switch off, add Cardamom powder and stir for a minute or two. Pour into a greased tray and flatten with a greased cup to a thin sheet of 1/4 inch.

5. After it cools, cut into desired shapes.
