Instant Pot Badam Halwa


Ingredients 1¼ cup almond meal (125 grams) ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons ghee ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon milk 1½ cups water ½ cup sugar ½ teaspoon saffron ½ teaspoon cardamom powder

Set the Instant Pot to saute mode (low) and add 2 tablespoons of ghee.

Once the ghee melts, add the almond meal. Saute for 2 minutes.

Add saffron milk, ¾ cup milk, and 1½ cup water. Mix well making sure there are no lumps.

Secure the lid of the IP and set it to pressure cook mode (low) for 3 minutes. Do a natural release of pressure for 5 minutes, then do a quick release.

Turn the Instant Pot on saute mode (normal). Add sugar and ¼ cup ghee. Mix well and keep stirring.

Continue stirring until the halwa thickens and the ghee begins to release from the sides. This will take approximately 9-10 minutes. Add cardamom powder and mix well.

To check if it is done, cool a small portion of halwa and roll it using your fingers. It should come together like a soft ball.

Serve warm.
