Badam Puri/Sweet Almond Puri/Badam Poori

Badam means Almonds, this nuts are very rich source of many nutrients, though they are rich in fat, they can be eaten raw. Indian cuisine are loaded with many almond based ultimate dishes. And my today's post is definitely an another tremendous sweet treat which you should surely give a try yourself at home to please your sweet tooth.These badam puri is one of my family's favourite which my grandma never fail to prepare during Diwali festivals. Easy to prepare, this sweet badam puri calls for simple ingredients. Almond paste is added to maida, rice flour to form a soft dough, hence this sweet dish is called Badam puris. These triangular puris fried in medium flame drenched in sugar syrup makes this ultimate Badam puri.

The best part of this Badam puri aka Almond pastries is no stuffing is needed and the addition of almond paste added to the maida-rice flour dough gives a different texture to this fantastic sweet. This sweet is well known in Karnataka and this sweet is prepared especially during festivals. Since Pondicherry cuisine is a medley of various cuisine, these badam puri might have travelled from Karnataka to Pondicherry. Usually decorated with some coconut flakes or chopped nuts, this almond puri can be served without any topping as well. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight - Family recpes as theme, and this badam puri is my kid's favourite, obviously how can i resist to post this fantastic sweet.
