As I have written in my previous posts and maybe throughout my blog, that I may become a vegan in future, so I am preparing myself, also as of now I don’t take buttermilk, milk, curd etc in my diet, yeah I eat cheese, that too very rarely and also I like cheese, so it may take some time before I am fully off from that, until that I am “half vegan”.

Notes

For almond paste, take the almond soak it overnight or for few hours and the take out the skin and blend it into smooth paste with little water.

Even though there is no one drops of fat it’s very yummy.

To make it even healthier you can add 3/4th cup dates paste.

Or you can add cane sugar, its gives a beautiful colour to the halwa.
