A regal dessert, Badam Halva is a royal sweet!

Made with almonds, this dessert has a fudge-like texture and is usually made during festive occasions. This vegan version of the traditional dessert uses almond milk, thus has a rich nutty taste!


  • 1 cup almonds (soak overnight and peel)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons Miyoko’s cultured vegan butter
  • 3 teaspoons amaranth flour or wheat flour
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup organic brown sugar (I like the flavor of brown sugar. You can use white too)
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1 pinch saffron threads
  • 2 teaspoons cut or crushed pistachio for garnishing


- Grind the almonds in a blender and make a smooth paste.

- Heat a non-stick pan, add coconut oil and almond paste. Keep the heat at medium-low and continue stirring for about 45 mins or until golden brown.

- Add 3 teaspoon flour and vegan butter to the mixture and keep frying until you get a dark golden color.

- Keep stirring so it doesn’t burn or stick on the bottom.

- Heat up 1 cup almond milk in another pot.

- Add the hot milk and sugar to the mixture. Cook as milk incorporates and the sugar dissolves.

- Add cardamom powder and a pinch of crushed saffron.

-Transfer to serving dish and garnish with pistachios. Serve hot and enjoy.

Just a suggestion . When you are re heating to enjoy your halva you can add little water or vegan milk one tea spoon or so per serving. This will make it smooth and butter will not separate from halva .
