  • Now, with the help of pizza cutter or knife cut into pieces with either diamond or rectangular/square shape as per your preference.


  • Don’t add extra milk while grinding the almonds as it will increase the cooking time and little difficult in setting.
  • Rather than soaking for 2-3 hours, you can soak them in boiling water for 10 minutes to remove the skin and then dry it with kitchen towel and grind to a fine powder.
  • I used castor sugar so given the quantity for that. If you using thick granule sugar, then grind it to powder.
  • You can increase/decrease the amount of sugar as per your preference.

  1. Hi can I use Almond meal instead of whole almonds. Thank

    1. Hi paulomi, I haven’t tried with that. But I guess, you can give it a try. Just add little bit of milk while cooking otherwise they will turn dry.
