Badam Katli in celebration of my second award

My second award. It feels great to get an award by a fellow blogger. Thank you Cham for considering my blog as yummy. The Yummy Blog award is started by Roopa.

"Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos”

One of the rules of the award demands writing our most favorite desserts. The top 3 in my list are

Gulab Jamun


To choose 4 among the many yummlicious blogs around is difficult. Let it be passed to the other deserving blogs through friends. I pass the Yummy blog award to

The doctor blogger Nandita of SaffronTrail, who makes her dishes both yummy and healthy.

The chocolate queen Arundati of Escapades

The sunshinemom of Tongueticklers, a true super mom who prepares yummy treats for the tummy.

Kalai of Samaithupaarkalam , who has recently received the best presentation award from VOW event.

Here is your logo .

Rules for the ‘Yummy Blog’ award Receiver:

The person who receives the award should display the "Yummy Blog !" logo on their blog and also the meaning of the award which is "Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos".·The receiver should also quote their favorite yummy-licious :) dessert(s) that they have ever prepared/eaten. Don’t restrict yourself to any dessert, chocolate bars also welcome.·Also the receiver should pass on the award to four other bloggers whose blog they find "yummy" and let them know about the rules.

Coming to the recipe, I followed the recipe for Kaaju katli. Just replaced badam(Almonds) in place of Kaaju (Cashewnuts). In Microwave, it was easy and ready in less than 5 minutes.

Badam Katli

Badam powder - 1 cup

Milk powder - 1/2 cup

Milk - 1 tbspn

Powdered Sugar - 3/4 cup

Mix all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.

MW high for 2 minutes.

Stir and MW for 1 1/2 minutes.

By that time it will turn dry and starts frothing on the surface.
Remove from the MW.

Keep mixing with a ladle for 3 more minutes. It gets dried in the heat trapped in the mixture.

When warm, knead into a smooth dough and spread on a greased surface. Pat it using a rolling pin and mark the pieces using a knife.
