Almond Sweets

09 Nov

I am glad to write this recipe, as some my friends has requested it. Here it goes….


  1. Whole Almonds – 300gms
  2. Sugar – 250 gms
  3. Milk – 1 1/2 cup (or)  1 cup Water
  4. Rose Essence – little
  5. Red color – a pinch (add little red to get pink color)
  6. Green colour very little
  7. Powdered Sugar – 1/4 cup
  8. Shortening(any) – a little( to help making the shapes)


  1. Soak the almonds in hot water for 1/2 an hour. It will help to peel of the skin.
  2. Add the peeled almonds and milk to a blender and blend it to a smooth paste.
  3. Heat a nonstick  pan in a medium flame and add almond paste.
  4. Cook it in a medium heat until all the water content is evapourated and the almond paste resembles as a dough.
  5. Now add the Essence and before adding red colour save a  little for adding green color for stems and leaves.
  6. Add red colour mix it lightly to have a blend in colours.
  7. Allow it cool for 10 minutes and then shape it in to a ball.  When making balls add little shortening and  your palms and roll the balls in powdered sugar.
  8. Mix a pinch of green colour and shape into green stalk and leaves and arrange it to the top of the balls.

For this measure you can make around 45 – 50  gooseberry sized apples.

    @Akila , Shortening is any kind of fat – you can use Butter, Ghee, Margarine or Dalda.

    Icing Sugar = Powdered Sugar ( Usually i make it at home, it is less expensive).

    You can add sugar when the almond is half cooked. Later when the almond is cooked completely and when you shape it you can add powdered sugar to absorb extra moisture from the dough.
