Steps to make Badam Halwa or Almond Halwa:

1: Soak or blanch the almonds. what you see below is almonds soaked overnight and drained. blanching the almonds would help in peeling them easily. Soaked ones take a lot of time.

2: Blend the almonds in a blender to a smooth puree. take the almond puree in a wide pan.


3: Start cooking the almond paste on a low to medium flame.

4: Keep on stirring the paste at intervals. the paste splutters, so be careful while stirring.

5: The paste would start becoming dry and will become thick. this is how the paste appears after 12-13 minutes.

6: At this stage add sugar.

7: Stir and then add water.

8: Again stir.

9: Add oil.

10: Stir and let the mixture cook for some 20 minutes more. be ready to exercise your wrist muscles with the constant stirring :-)

11: Thickened a bit…9 minutes after adding oil.

12: The mix has become lumpy and thickened very well. after 10 minutes. the mixture has to become lumpy and it should stick to each other. if you add more oil or ghee you will see the oil separating out at this stage very clearly.

13: Time to add crushed cardamom and saffron… mix well and switch off the fire.

14: Now you can serve the almond halwa warm or hot in serving bowls or spread the hot halwa evenly on a greased plate or baking tray. if you want you can apply silver paper (varaq) on top of the halwa. i avoid all these things due to contamination in the varaq.

15: Once the badam halwa cools, then slice in square or diamond shapes.

16: Serve almond halwa and enjoy.

Eco Friendly Ganesha Idols


Festivals are moment of great joy and belebration, and in our country people show their faith in unique ways.

Simple rituals take on a different color and with each passing year, they become more cumbersome, the celebrations being on a grandiose scale. During Ganesh Chaturthi, however, the celebration fever reaches a high pitch and everything else is given a go-by. Devotion and faith is only one aspect. What is of more concern is the question of pollution. During Ganesh Festival, people should give a thought to the water bodies of the city.
