Badam Puri recipe | Diwali sweet recipes

Badam Puri | Badam poori recipe is a authentic Karnataka style sweet, made using maida, sugar and almonds as main ingredients. I have tasted this badam puri last year, when my friend sent to me.Last year itself i was thinking to try this out but it was last minute and couldn't post. Finally last week i met her, and asked her for the recipe. She  called me up yesterday after talking to her mom and gave me the detailed recipe. The sweet turned out so well and we all loved it.Thank you so much Nanda, for the detailed recipe. It was so crisp and juicy inside. The grated dry coconut and the flavour of saffron and cardamom complimented the badam puri.

Badam puri recipe

  Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 40 Mins |Yields: 6

    Plain flour | Maida  1/2 cup
    Almond flour*  2 tblsp
    Hot oil  2 tsp

    Almond slices  few (for garnishing)
    Dry coconut  2 tsp (to garnish)
   *You can soak 2 tblsp of almonds in hot water and take out the skin. Grind into a paste and add to the flour. Since i had  almond flour  i used that. 
Method:
  • In a bowl, add the plain flour, almond flour,hot oil, salt, turmeric powder or food colour.

  • Make this into equal small lemon sized balls. 
  • Take one lemon sized ball and flatten it.
  • Roll this into thin puris. It should be very thin.
  • Spread few drops of oil on this.
  • Dust little plain flour on this.
  • Fold this into a half moon.
  • Again spread few drops of oil and dust with little dry flour.
  • Fold this into a triangle.
  • Roll this gently. 
  • Slightly prick this with fork. You can skip this step too. 
  • Heat oil for deep frying. 
  • Bring the flame to low. Fry this in oil till crisp. 
  • Take out from oil and drain excess oil in kitchen towel.
  • Repeat this for the rest of the dough.
  • In pan add sugar and add 2 tblsp of sugar. 
  • Once it melts and forms one string consistency, switch off the flame and add saffron and cardamom powder. 
  • Soak the fried badam puris into the hot sugar syrup and coat the syrup gently and evenly.

Notes:
  1. Ensure that the puris are fried in low flame. Else it won't turn out crispy and become soggy.
  2. Make sure you get the one string consistency syrup, else the sugar will not get coated to the badam puris.
  3. If you are planning to keep this for 4-5 days, add slightly roasted dry coconut or use desiccated coconut.
