Badam Katli Recipe | Almond Burfi Recipe With Almond Flour


Badam katli recipe | almond katli recipe | almond burfi with almond flour | badam burfi with almond flour is a traditional Indian sweet made during festivals such as Diwali, Holi, and Navaratri. 

Almond burfi with almond flour is a rich and wholesome dessert. Irresistibly delicious in taste. It has a soft texture that is so addictive to eat and the mildly sweet flavor would surely make you crave for more katlis.

The term burfi is derived from the Persian word barf, which means snow. It is a type of fudge or mithai that is usually made from powdered nuts like almonds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, etc.

This badam katli is a vegan recipe, an Indian style almond fudge which is semi-dry on the outside and has a soft & chewy texture. It is traditionally cut into a diamond shape and the thickness varies from quarter to half-inch in size. In India, katli is sometimes called Katri which means "slice", and burfi is pronounced as barfi, borfi, burfee, etc.

Almond katli holds a special place in Indian cuisine. It is prepared for many special occasions, parties and also given as a return gift to friends and relatives. It is a delectable dessert to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Badam barfi is very easy and quick to make. So you can prepare this dessert at any time. It has no artificial colors, flavors, chemicals, preservatives, and stays good for a very long time. Some like to add rose water/rose essence/ almond/vanilla essence for the flavor. I like to add a pinch of saffron (soaked in milk) which smells so divine.

The traditional badam katli is prepared by soaking almonds and grinding them into a coarse paste using milk or water. Then the almond paste is cooked with sugar and ghee on medium level heat. I have given the link below.

Please check out my authentic version of badam burfi, which was posted last year for Diwali. The Kesar badam burfi recipe is an exotic dessert, which is quite easy for a beginner in cooking as it involves no sugar syrup process. The saffron gives a beautiful golden yellowish hue to the burfi, adding lots of ghee helps in getting a soft and melt-in-mouth texture, and cardamom is added to flavor the burfi. A must-try recipe if you love ghee. Take a look at the below picture, Kesar badam burfi is mouthwatering, isn't it?😋

So coming to today's badam katli, the ingredients are simple and minimal which includes almond flour, sugar syrup, little ghee/oil, and cardamom powder. The sugar syrup doesn't require string consistency and this dessert can be prepared within 30 minutes.

In this recipe, I have used Bob's Red mill almond flour which was perfect. Similarly, you can use Costco's almond flour too. In case, if the flour is not available in your place, you can make almond flour at home which is easy but a bit time-consuming. So, plan the recipe accordingly!

Also, when you make almond flour at home, be very careful while blending nuts in the mixer or food processor. If you over blend the almonds, it will turn into almond butter instead of flour.

Further, I want to mention the difference between almond flour and almond meal. The almond flour is blanched and ground into a fine powder, mostly without the skin. For an almond meal, the almonds are ground into a coarse powder along with the skin. Both are widely used in gluten-free baking recipes and paleo diet recipes. Almond flour recipes include almond flour halwa, chocolate burfi with almond flour, almond butter burfi, etc.




There are different variations in making this badam katli recipe. It can be made from condensed milk, almond paste, milk powder, jaggery powder, almond flour, coconut milk, almond meal, gulkand, etc. You can also replace almond flour with cashew flour to make Kaju burfi or Kaju katli. It is also a rich and tasty dessert. Kaju denotes cashew nut in Hindi.

The same procedure can be followed to make the Kaju badam burfi recipe, simply take an equal portion of powdered Kaju flour & almond flour and follow the below procedure to make Kaju badam katli.

Furthermore, almond burfi can be decorated with Chandi ka vark/edible silver leaf for a traditional and classic touch. It is commonly used in Indian sweet shops for decorative purposes. It doesn't have any particular taste, but it looks rich and classy. You can also decorate the burfi's with slivered almonds, pistachios, or simply keep it plain. Alright, let's get into the recipe!

How to make badam katli:


1. Add 1 cup of sugar to a non-stick pan and keep the flame on medium. 

2. Pour 1/2 cup water.

3. Add cardamom and saffron flavor. (Note: It is optional). 

4. Mix it well and let the sugar melt on a medium flame.

5. Keep stirring it using a wooden/silicone spatula.

6. Once the sugar syrup starts to boil, immediately add the almond flour. 

7. Stir well until there are no lumps formed.

8. The almond sugar mixture starts to form bubbles.

9. Add 1 to 2 tbsp of ghee or any oil. Mix it well.

10. Let the mixture cook on a medium to low flame.

11. Keep stirring by scraping the side of a pan.

12. The mixture starts to boil vigorously.

13. It slowly starts to leave the pan. 

14. The mixture starts to thicken. 

15. It turns into a sticky consistency and halwa like texture. Switch off the flame and keep the pan away from aside. (Note: To test this stage, pinch a small portion and roll it using your oil greased fingers. If it forms a ball without sticking then it is done).

16. Now, keep stirring the mixture in the same pan using a spatula. Stir until it forms a semi-fudgy consistency, you can add a few tbsp of ghee if you want. (Note: In the traditional method, people use their hands to knead the dough mixture into a softball and roll it using a rolling pin. But, I would like to do this process directly on the pan to avoid the mess, and trust me it is so much easier and works out perfectly).

  4. Hi Pavi,
    Great recipe and I love that you like to Make it mess free.
    However, i have a question for you.
    I’ve tried making This with the exact same measurements but it doesn’t come in great quantity. I mean , I only get like 10
    Pieces with less thickness.
    I use the blanched almond flour.
    Any feedback on that.

    1. Hi BR, Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm not sure why you got less quantities.
      I always use US measuring cups. So, I get around 8 to 10 medium size square burfi pieces for 1 cup of almond flour. (1 cup flour equals to 240 ml/ 120 grams /4 ounce/ 0.25 quart).
