Unless you soak in milk or water how you gring into a smooth paste? Milk adds flavour

yes milk adds flavour..i can see that...i didn't know you make it into a paste :confused: because it said to drain it then grind it...so i didn't see what the point was....

Ncm,

I have done Kaju/Badham cake..

For Badham ..soak Badham in hot water for a while..so tht it will be easy for u to seperate the skin and then grind it to a paste....depending upon the qty measure sugar....add sugar/water to a pan..once it comes to a boil/sugar melts ...add the badam paste...other spices if u need like yelaikai/saffron....mix well..so tht it combines and cook for a while....once it is ready...just pour it in a greased pan..leave it for a while...u can also add edible silver paper at the top....u can cut it two small squares/triangles and u can serve them...

for cashew u can either soak them in water or in milk..milkadds more flavour as per alpha

wow thankooo sruti :sm05: thankooo krishnan :sm05:

ok that makes much more sense...the recipe i read had the cashews ground to a powdery texture...naturally, we were confused as to how to make it powdery after soaking it in milk...so we added the milk later...amma got mad at me as it took ages...:doh: it turned out ok...but thankfully as it was a trial, we used a small quantity of everything. how long should we soak the nuts for? also, if i wanted the burfi to have a white/creamy/off-white colour...do i not include saffron because otherwise it will turn red?

u r welcome..

u can get the powdered form of Cashew/Badham from Groc store..it will save u r time of soaking/grinding....

For Bhadam/Pista soak it btwn 15mns - 30 mns...and chk whether u r able to peel of the skin..if not soak it for some more time...

Rgd Cashew...u hve to just soake it so tht whn u grind them it will be easy for u and the paste will come smooth...

Saffron its upto u..if u want u can add them...and if u dnt want the threads..just soak them in little qty of milk and then add the milk along with the sugar syrup...it will not turn red..depng upon the qty of thrds u r soaking the color of te milk will be btwn light yellow to bright yellow color....
