Atta Badam Halwa — a classic Indian dessert made quick with almond flour, this halwa comes together in just 15 minutes! With familiar hints of cardamom and saffron, there’s no doubt it’ll be a hit!
In a saucepan, bring your water to a boil and add the sugar, cardamom powder and saffron. Stir it till the sugar dissolves. If you want the halwa to be a little less sweet, then reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup. We don't want to create a thick sugar syrup, so as soon as the sugar is dissolved, keep it aside.
Heat a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan on low heat and add in the ghee.
Once the ghee has melted, add in the almond flour, wheat flour and semolina.
Roast the flour on low to medium heat for 7-8 mins until it turns golden. The color will be similar to an almond skin.
Now, add in the sugar syrup while stirring continuously.
Keep stirring the mixture continuously without forming lumps for 5-7 minutes, until it comes together and you can see the ghee on sides.
Garnish with pistachios and enjoy!
