How to Make Sweet Badam Puri

  • Mix flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Rub with ghee, till well blended.
  • Add enough water, to make a smooth dough.
  • Knead on a clean surface, for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Cover with a moist cloth and keep aside for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Divide into small portions, like ping pong balls.
  • Take one ball and roll it into a circle, 5.5 cm in diameter.
  • Apply a little ghee on the side facing up.
  • Sprinkle some powdered almonds all over.
  • Fold into half, press lightly, and again fold, to form a triangle.
  • Press gently, inserting a clove in the centre, if desired.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough. Deep fry the puris and keep aside.
  • For syrup:
  • Boil water and sugar, in a deep vessel.
  • Add milk, and simmer, till the curdled scum is collected on top.
  • When the syrup is slightly sticky to touch on the spoon, take off from fire.
  • Strain with a metallic strainer or a moistened muslin cloth.
  • Return to boil, for a minute, stirring in cardamom powder and saffron.
  • Dip the badam puris, one by one, for 30 seconds or so.
  • Allow excess syrup to drain in a perforated container.
  • Arrange all the drained puris on a serving dish.
  • Sprinkle almonds, pistachios, cardamom and saffron decoratively.
