Really, its such a great sweet. My son love this , in his words sweet means almond or kaju burfi. Probably all the Indians like almond burfi. You can have it this any time in parties, travelling and picnics. And also a bunch of roses along with delicious badam burfi will surely become a great gift idea.

1 cup Almonds
1 cup Sugar
1/4 Milk powder
2tbs Milk
2tbs Ghee
1 tsp Cardamom powder
silver Leaf (optional)

Soak almonds in water for 2 hours . Remove the skin and blend
the almonds to a fine paste, Use as little milk as possible when blending.

In heavy bottomed pan mix sugar and ground almond, cook in a medium flame, stirring continuously until thick consistency. Over low flame, add milk powder and cardamom powder to this and again keep stirring until this mixture does not stick to the pan and starts to leave sides forming like a ball, as shown in the picture below. While stirring add ghee little by little.

Spread mixture on a greased work surface. Roll lightly with a rolling pin, to a desired thickness. Cut into diamond or square shape using a knife, when it is still lukewarm. Apply the silver leaf for decoration. Cool completely, and keep it in refrigerator for half an hour. Store in a container.
