Ingredients:

Almonds/Badam - 1 cup

Sugar - 2 cups

Soak the almonds in boling water for 5 minutes and then in cold water for about an hour.Peel the skin and grind into a smooth paste adding milk little by little.
In a heavy bottomed pan(preferably a non-stick pan)dissolve the sugar in 3/4 cup of water.In a low flame keep on stirring the sugar solution.
After it starts to boil,don't stir occasionally.Test the consistency of the syrup.It should form a string about 1cm long ,when the syrup is poured from a ladle.
At this time add half of the ghee and the almond paste.
Keep on stirring on low heat till the mixture starts  to leave the sides of the vessel .
Add  the yellow food color and the remaining ghee.
After the ghee is absorbed,pour the contents on to a greased plate .
