Badam barfi recipe - how to make almond barfi - barfi recipe

Badam or almond barfi recipe - Deepavali festival and faral is incomplete without laddus and barfis. Among all barfis, cashew nut barfi and almond barfi are my favorites. This most in demand barfi is available in mithai (sweet) shops. But homemade sweets have emotional touch that served with much pride. In homemade sweets purity of ingredients and the cleanliness is guaranteed. I have already posted badam laddu, that is prepared with almond khava mixture. The preparation of almond khava mixture for both laddu and barfi are almost similar. Smart idea is that, to prepare both laddu and barfi at a time, prepare more quantity of almond khava mixture, divide them into two equal portions, then use one portion to prepare laddu and another one for barfi, I did the same thing. The only difference between the preparation of laddu and barfi is that to achieve a smooth layered attractive barfi, the almond mixture has to be smooth. To prepare barfi, the mixture has to be rolled to a thick round disc, trimmed to square, then cut  barfi into squares.

  • I have used the almond khava mixture which is  prepared for badam laddu. So, I am not posting the same thing again.
  • Once the mixture turns to lump, remove from heat.  Divide it into 2 eaqual portions.
  • Take one portion and knead it to soft. ( Use another portion to prepare badam laddu)
  • When the mixture is warm, roll it to a thick round disc on a chapati board. Trim the sides and give a square shape. 
  • Then take a cutter or sharp knife and grease it with ghee. Using this knife, cut the rolled mixture into square shape.  (You can also cut it into diamond shape.)
