Badam Burfi is a traditional Indian sweet made from almonds and sugar. This easy to make sweet can be made at home with just a few ingredients – almonds, sugar syrup and saffron.
The dessert is typically served during the winter season in North India.
This is one of the many desserts that draws its origins from the royal Mughal kitchens of India. This almond-based fudge is often served during Diwali, but it can be easily made at home using only three ingredients.
