Chocolate Coated Badam Roll Ingredients
Badam Burfi roll is prepared with some basic ingredients. These are:
Almond flour – It is one of the key ingredients. For this recipe, I used homemade almond flour. You can make homemade almond flour using this recipe, or you can use store-bought almond flour for meals. Just make sure that you are using good-quality almond flour.
Milk powder – I have used full cream milk powder here, you can also use skimmed milk powder to make this chocolate coated badam roll.
Milk cream – I have added 2 tablespoons of milk cream to this recipe to get a smooth texture and rich taste. You can also use homemade fresh malai here. You can also use almond milk or coconut cream if you are making vegan burfi rolls.
Milk – I have used whole or full-fat milk for binding the kesar badam roll. You can also use semi-skimmed milk. Use vegan milk alternatives to make vegan burfi rolls.
Sugar – I added 1/2 cup powdered sugar to make this burfi roll. It gives the burfi dough a nice and smooth consistency. Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar. You can also use sweetened condensed milk. Just don’t use granulated white sugar here.
White Chocolate – It is used for coating burfi rolls, so use high-quality chocolate. You can also use white chocolate chips here.
Ghee – A little bit of ghee (clarified butter) is added to the burfi mixture for an added rich aroma and soft texture. A little bit of ghee is also added to the white chocolate to give it a shine and rich Indian dessert-like taste.
Flavorings & Nuts – Adding any type of flavoring to this badam burfi recipe is entirely optional. Here I used Indian mithai (sweet) flavorings, such as saffron, cardamom, rose petals, and rose/kewra water. These flavors are added here to enhance the overall taste of this burfi roll. I have also used chopped almonds, pistachios and cashews for decorating burfi.
How to make Badam Burfi Roll
Making chocolate coated badam roll with almond flour is straightforward. You just need some mixing, shaping, and chocolate coating. This is how you can make this chocolate coated badam roll from scratch:
Step 1 - Add almond flour, milk powder, cream, saffron-soaked milk, and cardamom to a bowl. Mix it using a spoon.
Step 2 - Then add dried rose petals, cardamom powder, and rose/kewra water. Mix until the mixture comes together like a non-sticky dough ball.
Step 3 - Add 1 teaspoon of ghee and knead well until the burfi dough is smooth. Divide the dough into 2-3 portions. Roll it into a thin and smooth log. Then cut the roll into a 1.5-inch long cylinder shape. Smoothen each roll. Shape more rolls until all the badam mixture dough is used up.
Step 4 - Add chocolate pieces to a larger mixing bowl. Also, add 1 teaspoon of ghee and melt it in a double boiler (bain-marie) until smooth and melted. You can also melt it in a microwave. Once the chocolate is half melted, add saffron strands to it. Once fully melted, add cardamom powder, and dried rose petals and mix until everything is well combined. Set it aside and let it cool slightly.
Step 5 - Dip each burfi roll in the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to run off, then place it on a wire rack or sheet. Immediately sprinkle rolls with chopped nuts, and dried rose petals. Place them in the refrigerator to set for 15 minutes before serving. Once set, trim off the extra chocolate if there is any, and serve chilled.
