Badam nu Siro/Almond Breakfast Halwa

Badam Siro/Almond Halwa

Badam Siro/Almond Halwa

So whenever I visit my beloved eldest sister, she always offers to make something special for breakfast. Most of the time, I feign shyness and tell her, “oh don’t worry bout it!” But today I thought, “Hmm, if I say yes, then she will make her special siro and then I’ll take pictures for my blog!” So here is her tasty breakfast badam siro recipe. Excuse the pictures, I wasn’t prepared and took them on my low-resolution phone camera. But do try it! It is yummo (and super easy to make)!

Since the halwa is usually eaten for breakfast, toasted whole-wheat bread is a perfect accompaniment. Although, I say it is good as is, all you need is a TABLESPOON to shovel it into your tummy! lol!

This can also be served as a sweet side dish accompanying a meal.
