    Mullai ma’am just done with my Badam Halwa, tasted yummy. But with the less amt of khoa it yeilds only a lesser quantity of B.H 🙁 I love the taste. Also i reduced the quantity of water and sugar. Thanx for ur receipe.

    2nd time it was gud again. but both times i prepared badam cakes rather than halwa. i think i’ve cooked for somemore time than actual. but already i prepared ur kaju katli. so i followed the final step of kaju katli for this and cut into badam cakes. looks and tastes awesome…..

      When the sugar syrup comes to a vigorous boil, start checking for thread consistency. We need one string or soft ball consistency, which should take about 5 to 6 minutes from the time you start melting sugar. When you place a drop of the syrup in cold water, it should form a long thread, when rolled up between fingers should form a soft ball. Explaning this procedure in words is very difficult, you have to actually practice  and evetually after a couple of attempts you should be able to master it.

      Rose, its also a form of condensed milk, but its not the equivalent. You cannot use it as a substitute, bcos khoa doesn't have sugar. Whereas condensed milk is packed with sugar. You also have unsweetened condensed milk, but again it cannot be used for making certain Indian desserts. If you wanna taste some good Indian sweets, then stick with Khoa.
