Pista barfi has a mild nutty flavour and attractive colour, both of which make it very tempting. This barfi is mildly flavoured with cardamom, and tastes good as such, but if you wish for a more elaborate presentation, you could choose to sandwich two varieties of barfi, garnish with roasted nuts and saffron, or come up with your own splendid ideas!
