Alam in telugu means Ginger, which is hot. Almonds is a nut which is widely used in making sweets. A combination of this, wow isn't a wonderful thought. Thanks to Kalyani who runs this event, which is a monthly blog hop. Last month she had cinnamon and chilli.  I missed it out. This time also I thought I might miss it out, then I remembered my bookmarked post - almond-ginger truffles.

Ginger is grown at the root of the plant. Ginger has been claimed to decrease the pain from arthritis, though studies have been inconsistent. It may also have blood thinning and cholesterol lowering properties that may make it useful for treating heart disease. (Source: wikipedia).

Almonds is a nut which stands in the top of the list which is good to health because it reduces cholesterol greatly. 

Almonds - 10 to 12 nos
Ginger - 2 inches
Dates - 3 nos
Sugar - 5 tsp

Roast almonds and keep it aside
Peel the skin of ginger and grate it into small pieces
Use the dates skin and throw the seed. I used wet ones not dried one.
Add roasted almonds, grated ginger and dates along with sugar and blend it well
As I used wet dates the mixture, turned out to be moist. Hence I could avoid adding ghee to mix the sweet.
Serve it.

Incase you use dry dates like lion dates and so on, kindly use ghee to mix the mixture.

Story: When I gave this to my co-brother and my sister-in-law (hubby's sister) she told this is "alammurabha". Great I was surprised because I never ate this after my marriage at my home or before marriage in my home. I was happy too. My co-brother told the concept is new as I have used ginger in sweet.
