Deepavali/Diwali is a festival of lights celebrated in India. On this occassion thought of making a simple and quick to make yet healthy dish.

This fudge/burfi is filled with goodness of Strawberries, Almond and honey. Almond was grounded along with the skin to retain its nutrients but feel free to used blanched almonds.

Health Benefits:

  • Ground almond-1cup
  • Chopped strawberry-1cup
  • Honey-3/4cup (or as per sweet desired)

  • Low fat Butter -1tbsp+for brushing


  • Heat butter in a pan add in chopped strawberry saute until slightly mushy (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Turnoff the flame
  • Add honey andย Stir in ground almond immediately.

  • Sweet can be personalised as per the taste.

  1. Dear Chitra I really love your Blogg and look forward to recieving your recipes.

    I would like to offer a little advise given to me many years ago by a food editor. It was when writing recipes to list the ingredients in the order which they are used as it makes it much easier when preparing the recipe. I found it really useful advise and of course logical.

    Looking forward to your next recipe blogg.

    Keep up the great work, warmest regards Jayasri
