Badam Latch, also variably called “badam latcta,” “balam latcha,” etc, is a super tasty snack made, sold, and consumed in Guyana since pre-independence times. Originating in India, it was introduced to Guyana by the East Indians. Unfortunately, due to evolving foods and food technology, as well the influx of imported food products, badam latch is rarely seen nowadays. Nevertheless, we urge all Guyanese to keep the badam latch experience alive. Through documenting this recipe this article, we hope that we have helped to keep it alive.
