1 cup almond paste
3/4 cup sugar
large pinch cardamom pwd
2-3 tbsps milk
1 1/2 tbsps ghee
1. Place 3/4 cup of almonds in hot water and leave aside for an hour. The almonds easily peel off after an hour. Grind the peeled almonds to a smooth paste by adding milk.
2. Take a heavy bottomed vessel, add the sugar and water and let it melt and once it begins to boil, add the almond paste and combine. Now get ready for some good arm work-out. Go on stirring till the mixture begins to thicken (it should look like a thick dosa batter) on low flame).
During the stirring process, add the ghee which gets absorbed into halwa. Turn off heat.
3 Leave aside to cool and it thickens further.
