Happy Diwali! Diwali (or Deepavali) is India’s biggest holiday of the year. Also called the festival of lights – it gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.
I enjoy making a variety of Mitai (Indian sweets) during this time – and this recipe is a quick and easy one!
2 teaspoon butter or ghee
1 cup almond or cashew flour
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoon sugar (or more to taste)
Pinch of saffron strands (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder (optional)
Chopped nuts, for garnish
Whipping cream (optional)
Heat the butter or ghee in a saucepan.
Add the almond flour, milk, sugar and saffron strands, if using.
Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, until mixture is thick
Add Cardamom powder (if using).
Pour into a serving dish, and garnish with nuts
Serve warm, with whipping cream if desired
