Almond Burfi

Almond burfi is a perfect dessert for holidays and special occasions. I made this dessert for Diwali this year.
Almond Burfi

Almonds - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - enough to blend
Ghee/Butter - 2 tbsp
Saffron - a pinch

1.  Soak almonds in hot water.
2.  Peel the skin and blend with just enough milk and saffron to blend to a fine paste.
3.  Put the blend mixture and sugar in a anodized or nonstick pan and cook.
4.  Add the ghee/butter and keep stirring for about half an hour till the mixture leaves the pan.
5.  Spread the mixture on a greased tray and cut to desired shapes.
