He! He! He!!!....Got confused on seeing the pic and name. Nothing yar its our usual Badam halwa. I have not added any color to it. Its a one natural colored with artificial stones around it. I thought we have not add any color to the sweet why don't we decorate it. The Story of this Jigina work coming below. Then only u can understand the reason of d decoration.

Let me come to the story of the shape and to the name given. While preparing this my little one is nagging me and troubling so much. Not letting me to do it peacefully. something or the other he keep on asking me and adamantly sit on my hip. One hand my kid and my other hand stirring the halwa. jus Imagine the scene how could i manage the both. What I m coming to say is somewhere or other I miss the right stage of making perfect halwa.

I let it cool for seconds, mts and hours to cut them to a particular shape. no way its sticking on to the spoon and couldn't draw a single line on the halwa. I got vexed at one point and decided y always halwas should be in diamond or square shape, is there any unwritten rule for this, we should brake the rule by making balls out of it. Hurreh.... i could easily make balls out of my favourite halwa. Had a big fun time with my halwa story... (I said this to my kids and hubby seriously at bed time they started laughing, the bed time story became comedy tale....)

But here is the correct recipe to make perfect halwa. So don't scared to read and try this. Here u go....


Badam/Almonds 2 cups
Sugar 1 1/2 cups
Ghee 1 sp (without ghee i cant make any sweet )


Soak badam/Almonds in water for 1 hr. Peal the skin and grind to nice paste.
In a pan add a tsp of ghee and add the paste along with sugar.
Stir continuously till the raw smell of badam goes and the deal become non sticky to the pan.
Transfer the halwa to the plate and cut into desired shapes.
or u can make balls as i did.

Try and let me Know the result. At least i can get satisfied if someone make it perfect.

Ball Shaped Badam looks every more tempting,love all the decorations.
Its true without butter or ghee no dessert is complete,perhaps one could adjust\reduce the quantity :)

Hey, is this the post you mentioned about? Looks awesome. Jigna work is cute, but I guess you will have to be careful in removing them off before eating it.
And that thing you said is very cute"you can't make anything without ghee"! :)

When do u add sugar dear? it's not there in the procedure.. And u added only 1 sp ghee? this time i am also making badam halwa.. but not compromising on ghee as I had a bad experience with mysore pak. So I am going to put atleast 1 stick of butter.. hahah
