Almonds

Cardamom + Saffron Spiced Almond Biscuits / Badam Puri

Badam (Almond) Puri is a dessert that is usually eaten during Diwali but I decided to try out the recipe that my aunt shared with me since the only Indian sweets I tend to like come out of her kitchen. Almonds are a good source of protein, fiber, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats so I try to eat a handful every day. These puris make it a little more fun to get my daily almond fix and my husband ate 4 crispy chewy puris right from the cooling rack so I know they’re a winning recipe 🙂  They aren’t too sweet and have a nice texture to them without any flour – just lightly sweetened almonds and some delicate spices. I like to toast them in the toaster oven when I eat leftover cookies because they lose a little bit of the crunch while being stored. Enjoy! (more…)
