Almonds - 1/4 cup

Cardamom powder - a pinch


1) Soak the almonds overnight ( I soaked it more than 24 hrs as I could not start making as planned )

2) Wash and Peel the skin of almonds

3) Make the past by adding required milk

4) Heat the non stick pan  with ghee and add the almond paste

5) Keep the flame low and stir until you get a nice pink color. It would take about 10 mins.

6) Slowly add water and make it to halwa consistency.
