Health benefits of almonds have been a matter of discussion for centuries, with no controversies whatsoever. Eat them raw or toasted; flakes or sliced, slivered or floured or simply turn them into almond milk or almond butter.
Believe me or not, almond butter makes a great substitute to clarified butter. I have tried an almond butter cake, without adding a single drop of oil or butter and it turned out amazingly delicious.This delicious cake was ready in 2 minutes. yes, this was a mug cake.

You may also make almond butter kulfi, which is seriously healthylicious and does not use cream or sugar! Almond butter does the magic here while honey adds subtle sweetness to this seriously addictive kulfi.
Trust me, the almond butter kulfi sans oats makes a delicious navratri recipe.
Almonds come with several health benefits. Unlike other types of nuts that are high in bad cholesterol, almonds raise good cholesterol levels. Try this health food and you will fall in love with the recipe!
According to a study published in the American Dietetic Association Journal, almonds raise vitamin E levels in the red blood cells and plasma. The study also claims that almonds for cholesterol are really beneficial and help in lowering LDL while raising HDL levels. The nuts help improve blood lipid levels and are thus great for the heart functioning.
Another study published in the Cancer Letters claims that almonds may help reduce colon cancer risk. In fact, eat almonds regularly to boost your body's cancer'fighting properties. Of course, you cannot change your genes, but you certainly can alter the behavior of genes with the type and amount of food you eat.
Though almond benefits outnumber their side effects, if you are allergic to nuts, avoid consuming them.

Ingredients for Instant Milk Badam Ladoo OPOS
1 cup measures 235 ml
1 1/4 cup- almond powder (simply grind almonds to powder to make 1/12 cups) - take 1 cup and 1/4 cup separate
1/2 cup- milk powder (you may skip to make it vegan - no substitute required)
1/4 cup- jaggery powder (more depending on your taste preferences)
1 tbsp- water
How To Make Instant Ladoo With Almonds
Mix 1 cup almond powder and milk powder in a bowl. Use a sifter or sieve to sift the flours. Remove any chunks or big pieces.
Take a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker. This is standard for all OPOS recipes. Please do not try OPOS recipes without basics.
Add 1 cup water to it.
Take a wide and deep bowl that can fit in the cooker. Add jaggery powder and 1 tbsp of water to the bowl. Place this bowl inside the pressure cooker. I kept a small bowl beneath it. Cover the inner pot with foil or a dish/tray/plate so that boiling water from beneath doesn't enter the bowl and ruin your jaggery syrup.
Pressure cook for 5 whistles.
Release pressure manually.
Be careful and add the powders.
Mix gently and remove on a greased plate or foil.
Make almond balls and roll out the ladoos on the remaining 1/4 cup almond powder.
Enjoy these delectable ladoos for a power-packed snack.
Do not be surprised if kids would ask for more.
