It’s not even a week for Diwali(Indian festival) we started indulging in Indian sweets. Today I decided to make vegan Almond flour burfi with Costco blanched almond flour in instant pot and its a super hit in my family. This is one of the almond flour Indian recipes everyone can enjoy.
Almond fudge in India we call almond katli or badam barfi/badam katli. The total time took to make this blanched almond flour burfi is less than 15 minutes. If you want to make this a vegan version use oil instead of ghee to make this healthy fudge recipe.
On my recent trip to Costco, I happen to see this almond flour and all I could think of is almond katli. Since its a blanched almond flour there is no need for soaking, removing the skin, etc.
I see people complaining the burfi didn’t come as expected. While making almond flour burfi please use this fine granulated sugar to get perfect results.
I used Costco organic sugar for these almond flour recipes.
