Royal Almond Halwa – Easy Recipe

I love desserts with Almonds in them. They are just so regal! Indian sweets, can be very sweet but there are a few that I love like Gulab Jamun, Carrot Halwa and this Royal Almond Halwa. This is one dessert that is served in very small portions. Just a spoonful is enough to make you happy!

Royal Almond Halwa – Easy Recipe


  • 200 gms finely ground almond – this is available in the baking needs section.If you can not find it, use fresh almonds blanched in hot water, peeled and then lightly toasted before grinding to a fine grain powder.
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp almonds, sliced for garnish
  • 1 Tbsp Pistachio, sliced for garnish
  • 2 tsp Saffron strands soaked in 2 Tbsp hotmilk
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk  – 400 gms  – use less if you prefer
  • 2 Tbsp ghee


  • Soak the ground almonds in the water for 1 hour
  • Add to a non stick pot or pan, along with the condensed milk and ghee.
  • Heat on medium, and stir occasionally for 20 minutes, till you see the halwa, pulling away from the sides of the pan.
  • Add the saffron milk mixture and stir continuously for another 10 minutes, till the halwa holds together like a nice stretchy dough.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a mould or dish. Press some sliced almond and pistachio into the sections.
  • Allow to cool. Cut using cookie cutters.
  • I like to roll and shape the warm halwa in cookie (wax) paper and then place them in the fridge till set. Then slice them into small pieces along with the paper. Unwrap before serving.
