Method:
  1. Soak the almonds for about 2 hours. We can also boil water and add almonds to it and then close the vessel with a lid and let it sit for half an hour. Then drain the water and peel the almond skin. It is very easy to peel the almond skin, we just need to apply little pressure on the sharp corner and the peel comes out easily. I usually prefer soaking almonds in hot water as it makes our peeling easily and also we don't need to remember about the soaking process. Then take the peeled almonds in a mixer along with 1/2 cup of milk. We should add milk just to grind the almonds to a thick coarse paste. I have used 1/2 Cup of milk. I have also soaked the saffron threads in 1 tablespoon of warm milk

  2. Grind the almonds to a little coarse paste. If you think you need milk to grind the almonds, then add milk little by little. Heat 2 tablespoon of ghee in a pan. 

  3. Add the ground almond paste and saute it in low flame for about 2 minutes. Then add saffron threads soaked in milk and mix well. 

  4. To this now add sugar and mix well. Adding sugar makes the mixture diluted. Now add yellow food color and mix well. Keep stirring the almond sugar mixture continuously by adding ghee in regular intervals and cook in low flame to make sure the badam doesn't get burnt. It will take atleast 30 minutes for the mixture to start oozing out the ghee and also the mixture will start to roll like a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan. 

  5. When the mixture starts to roll without sticking to the sides of the pan, remove the pan from flame. Allow the halwa to cool down and then then if you want, we can garnish with chopped badams

  6. The mouth-watering Badam Halwa is now ready to serve!
