Do I need to say anything about this which is rich,tasty halwa.Badam is a nut which has to be consumed daily.Do practise your children to eat at least five of it daily.In this way once a while you can have because its loaded with sugar and ghee which will increase your calories so better try to eat plain.Slightly adapted from here.

1.Soak badam in water for 2-3 hours(else you can soak it in hot water for 30 mins).Peel the skin.Grind it to fine paste with some milk.To 1\4 cup hot milk add few strands of saffron.
2.In a non stick pan add sugar and 1\2 cup water,heat and mix till sugar dissolves.Then add in ground badam paste,saffron milk,remaining milk(if any) and food colour.
