Updated: Mar 16

Today, we're creating a creamy and decadent treat that will activate your taste buds. This recipe is a beautiful blend of textures and flavors, featuring the rich nuttiness of almonds and a touch of saffron for an exotic twist.



It is made with the residue of almond milk, so nothing goes to waste.


Ingredients


Ghee 1/2 cup

Sugar 1/4 cup

Almonds paste made with 1/2 cup almonds in milk

Saffron soaked in water (pinch)

1/4 cup Residue of almond milk

Milk as needed

Almonds to garnish


Method

  1. Craft the Almond Paste: Combine almonds and a little milk in a food processor or blender. Grind until you achieve a smooth paste. Set aside.

  2. Heat the Ghee: In a pan, melt ghee over medium heat.

  3. Introduce the Almond Magic: Add the homemade almond paste to the pan and stir it into the melted ghee.

  4. Incorporate the Almond Milk Goodness: Add the leftover almond milk pulp from making your almond milk. This adds a lovely texture and extra almond flavor.

  5. Sweeten it Up: Add sugar to taste, stirring well to dissolve.

  6. Saffron Sensation: Pour the saffron, soaking it in milk, into the pan. Saffron infuses the dish with a subtle floral and honey-like aroma.

  7. Adjust the Consistency: If the mixture seems too thick, add a splash of milk to achieve a smooth, creamy texture.

  8. The Moment of Truth: Keep stirring until the mixture thickens and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This indicates it's ready!

  9. Serve and Savor: Transfer the creamy almond delight to a bowl and garnish with sliced almonds for an elegant touch.


So there you have it! This creamy almond delight is a delightful way to showcase the versatility of homemade almond paste and the unique flavor of ghee.
