as i mentioned earlier, the texture and taste of this badam puri recipe is very similar to the badusha recipe. the only striking differences are the use of almond paste and more importantly the shape of badam poori. basically, the badam paste is added directly to the plain flour dough and hence the name for this recipe. adding almond paste directly to the dough adds nice flavour and taste. in addition, the shape of this sweet is completely different and is done by folding the layers to a cone or triangle. also, it is then later tucked in with clove which then internally adds its own flavour to the sweet. to be honest the entire procedure can be cumbersome but still a worth try.

furthermore, some additional tips, suggestions, variations for this badam puri recipe. firstly, the dough has to be kneaded properly and also smoothly. also once the dough is prepared it is better rested before it is shaped and deep-fried. secondly, the sugar syrup has to be one string consistency and has to be stopped crystallising by adding lemon juice. as an alternative to sugar syrup you can also use jaggery syrup for the same purpose. lastly, deep fry these puris on a low to medium flame to cook it evenly. also, do not dip them immediately directly from the frying pan. however, it has to be still warm before dipping it.
