Badam burfi recipe - Almond barfi recipe

Badam or almond burfi recipe - Deepavali festival and faral is incomplete without laddus and burfis. Among all burfis, cashew nut burfi and almond burfi are my favorites. This most in demand burfi 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 burfi 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 burfi, I did the same thing. 

The only difference between the preparation of laddu and burfi is that to achieve a smooth layered attractive burfi, the almond mixture has to be smooth. To prepare burfi, the mixture has to be rolled to a thick round disc, trimmed to square, then cut  burfi into squares.
