Badam Burfi |Almond Fudge

Badam Burfi – Almond Fudge is an Indian sweet which is delicately flavored by almonds. It is rich and delicious, and can be made within 20 minutes. Lighten up any festival with this easy to make instant dessert. It requires only handful of ingredients and is vegan.

Most of the Indian sweets require accuracy, skills and time to make. When I have guests over, I usually make Kesari Bath or Badam Barfi. You can’t go wrong with either of these two. Badam Burfi is no-brainer. All you need to do is cook Almond flour in sugar syrup for a few minutes, and then roll it out, and cut it into desired shape. We love pistachios and saffron flavour in the Burfi. Rosewater and cardamom can be used for flavoring. When you are out of Almond flour, just soak almonds in hot water, peel the skin, dry roast the almonds in a pan, and then powder it.

Trust me when I say this, this sweet will be cherished and enjoyed by everyone in your family.And the best part you can adjust the sweetness of the burfi by varying the sugar amount you use. I prefer lightly sweetened burfi.

How to make Badam Burfi ?

In a pan, bring sugar, saffron, water to boil.

Add almond powder and tbsp of Almond milk.

Add tbsp of vegan butter. Cook in low flame for 10-15 mins stirring continuously or until mixture starts to leave the pan.

Another tip : Take a small portion of dough and roll it into a ball. If it sticking to your fingers, then it is like Halwa. Continue cooking further until it is non-sticky.

Allow the mixture to cool down for a few minutes.

Knead and roll it out. Add chopped nuts and roll out lightly.

Slice to square or diamond shaped burfis.

I hope you like the recipe. It is –

  • Easy to make
  • Fudgy
