Badam/Almond halwa is an Indian sweet. Almonds can be eaten as raw or toasted as a snack or add them to sweet or savory dishes. Almonds contain vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. So they offer a number of health benefits. Just a handful of almonds — approximately 1 ounce — contains one-eighth of a person’s daily protein needs.
