Make your weekend almondy with two super-indulgent dessert recipes.

A fusion sweet treat, the Almond and Carrot Halwa Crumble is flecked with sliced almonds.

Almond Pinnis make for a fabulous take on a traditional Punjabi dessert that uses wheat flour, rava, elaichi, sesame seeds and almonds.

Note: A one-thread syrup is sugar syrup viscous enough to pass the one-thread test.

It is important to keep testing for consistency while the sugar syrup is boiling.
The test for this is: Dip a spatula, preferably wooden, into the boiling sugar syrup and take out.
Some syrup would have coated the spatula.
Let it cool.
Touch the cooled syrup with your forefinger. Some syrup will come onto your finger.
Touch that with your thumb and separate thumb from forefinger.
When one little continuous delicate thread is formed by the syrup, when the coated forefinger is pulled away from your thumb, you have one-thread consistency sugar syrup.
