I am in Kathmandu with limited ingredients and machines, but this recipe worked perfectly. I made it as a free-standing torte on a baking sheet since the dough could stand up at the sides and stay up through baking. I made the base by pressing it, and rolled out the other half and cut strips for a lattice. Sticky and breaking but doable.
I ground whole almonds with their skins in the blender; some were still in small bits and some were pulverized. I used semi-whole wheat flour since that's what I had; and omitted cloves since I don't like them. I didn't have exact measurements but the recipe came out delicious. I used our homemade apricot jam, which is tart, so one batch I mixed in extra sugar, but actually we liked the one with tart jam much better. A local Nepali lady asked me eagerly for the recipe.
