Halwa poori - Delicious badam ka halwa (Almond halwa) filled inside pooris and deep fried. This is perfect on its own, or can be accompanied with kheer. I remember as a kid, whenever we used to go to India during vacations, my naani used to make these. It used to take an entire day, making the halwa first, then filling the pooris, lastly frying them. It used to be amazing to see the number of pooris she used to make! (with the help of the maids of course!) Just cant imagine making so many now. The recipe below makes around 20-25 depending on the size, you might have left over halwa, which will go perfectly well as a spread on bread, or you can add some milk and make it badam kheer. Anyway delicious halwa poori recipe is here. Do give it a try and let me knowwhat you think!
Soak almonds in warm water, and peel the skin off and set aside.
Grind the almonds, milk, saffron and sugar until it forms a smooth paste.
Cook this mixture on low heat, mixing regularly so that it doesn't turn brown.
