సర్వజిత్ నామ ఉగాది శుభాకాంక్షలు
(Wishing you all a happy Ugadi – This year is named Sarvajith)
I wanted to make something different for desert for Ugadi but last week’s badam halwa is still in fridge. When I asked my husband why he is not eating anymore, his answer was “bored eating of halwa”. He suggested me that if I can make something else out of it he can manage to finish the rest. I gave it a little thought and came up with my own version of a sweet resembling the badam katli. This is my Ugadi Special.
2 cups Badam Halwa
1/4th cup roughly chopped pista (reserve few for garnish)
2 tbsp khoya or dry milk powder
2 tbsp heavy cream/condense milk
1 tsp elachi (finely powdered)
1 tsp ghee
In a heavy bottom skillet mix all the ingredients on medium low flame, keep stirring continuously until it starts to come together. Do not over cook as it might start to get brittle. Grease a wide plate with ghee and shift the mixture and spread it around to cool. Take melon ball size mixture and shape it into a small medallion by gently pressing with your fingers. Repeat the process with remaining mixture and garnish with reserved pista.
Notes and Tips
You can roll the mixture into desired shapes. This mixture should be little dry when you cook. You can even add little rose water or kewra essence.
