Rajasthani Badam Halwa Recipe | Badam Halwa Recipe ( with Mawa)

Badam halwa Recipe

Rajasthani Badam halwa is little different from the south Indian badam halwa. They make this halwa two way one is the smooth textured one and other is the coarse textured. Here I have share a smooth version of rajasthani Badam halwa . For this month Indian cooking challenge Vaishali di had suggested the Rajasthani badam halwa,a traditional rajasthani sweet how can i miss this challenge So made them and here I am to share my recipe. I love to make smooth textured Halwa a lot and this one was so tempting I cudn't resist . We do add Mawa in this halwa and even in Rajasthani besan chakki but it tastes delicious without mawa too . This is one healthy sweet every growing kid should have as it is filled with richness and nutrients of almonds. Perfect to carry for a long road trip , I shared this sweet with some friends and they loved it. I thank god to get such compliments :). Perfect sweet snack to enjoy isn't it, that why I made them in bite size piece so that it is easy eat. Lets move on to the recipe..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
