Halwa makes for an essential traditional dessert in Indian households. Apart from being the best treat for sweet lovers, halwa is connected with our ancestral legacy. The way you prepare varies from home to home. The recipes are passed on from one generation to another. Don't you agree? Well, if you are bored with the regular halwa at your place, try something new this time. Chef Kunal Kapur has shared a recipe for flavourful badam halwa on Instagram. To make this, first, you have to soak almonds in water and then, remove their skin. Put peeled almonds into a grinder along with milk and blend it well. Heat some ghee in a kadhai and add the almond paste. Gradually add rose water, kewra water and some more milk. Keep mixing it until it's cooked properly. Add crushed and roasted dry fruits and serve hot.
