Love at first Barfi
When it comes to dessert, my sweet tooth knows no bounds. Chai hot chocolate? Down in one. Pint of Ben & Jerry’s? Pass the spoon. Plate full of Barfis? Now you’re talking.
If you’ve never had the pleasure, Barfis are milk-based sweets or mithai from India. Traditionally, they’re made at home and shared with loved ones throughout Diwali…which just so happens to take place in November! See where I’m going with this?
Ingredients (serves 8-10)
- 397g condensed milk
- 150g cashews or ground almonds
- 150g desiccated coconut
- ½ tsp ground cardamom
Step 1: Line your baking tin with greaseproof paper
Step 2: If you’re using cashews, add them to a food processor and grind to a fine powder.
Step 3: Add the ground nuts, coconut, cardamom and condensed milk to a medium saucepan and cook for 5-7 minutes — stirring until thick and smooth
Step 4: Spread the mix evenly onto your lined baking tray. Leave to cool for an hour before cutting into squares
Top tip: Beautify your Barfi with edible silver leaf for extra va va voom
