  • ½ cup Almonds
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • Few strands saffron
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee
  • A pinch Cardamom powder


  • Soak the badam | almonds in very hot water for 20 minutes.
  • Take out the skin and grind it into a smooth paste. Add the milk for grinding. You can use the raw milk or the boiled and cooled milk too.
  • Measure this paste . It came out 3/4 cup paste for me. so i added 3/4 cup of sugar.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan , add this badam paste, sugar(equal amount of the paste) and 1 tblsp of ghee.
  • Meanwhile grease a pan and keep it aside.
  • Stir in this badam sugar mixture in a medium low flame.
  • soak the saffron in 1 tblsp of warm milk for5 minutes and add that saffron milk to this.
  • Stir well till the badam mixture becomes a thick mass and starts leaving the sides of the pan. Add the remaining 1 tblsp of ghee.
  • Transfer this to the greased plate and when this becomes warm cut it into pieces.
  • I just sprinkled some everest milk masala on the top.
  • Badam burfi is ready. You can pack this for friends and relatives for diwali.



1.Do not add more milk while grinding and make the badam paste watery. Then it will take a lot of time to make the burfi.
2. The badam peels can be added to Thogaiyals instead of discarding it.
3. You can add yellow food colour to the burfi while making the badam burfi.
