Badam Puri | Badam Poori | Badam Puri recipe

Badam Puri is an authentic Karnataka style sweet, it is a yummy, soft and crispy sweet delicacy, beautifully layered with a great taste of almonds, milk, cardamom, ghee, and sugar syrup.

The texture and taste of the badam puri are very similar to the badusha, balushahi recipe. The only striking differences are the use of almond paste and more importantly the shape of badam poori.

The trick to making badam poori is to boil the sugar syrup to the right consistency. You do not want a very thick syrup nor a thin one that does not coat and definitely not the one that crystallizes.
Also, knead the dough lightly, make thin poori, if you want your badam poori to be light and crisp and a little thick, if you want your badam puri to be crispy on the outside, juicy and soft on the inside.

Notes:

  1. Add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent the syrup from crystallizing.
  2. Insert a clove to prevent the puris from opening up in oil when deep frying.
  3. Fry the puris on low-medium flame for even and thorough cooking.
