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!
- Soak the pistachios in enough warm water in a bowl for about 30 minutes.
- Drain all the water, peel the pistachios and blend them in a mixer into a fine paste. Keep aside.
- Combine the sugar and ½ cup of water in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 6 to 7 minutes or till the syrup is of 1 string consistency, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the pista paste, mix well and cook on a slow flame for approx. 5 to 7 minutes or till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, while stirring continuously.
- Transfer the mixture on a greased 150 mm. (6”) diameter plate and spread it evenly using a flat spoon. Keep aside to set for 1 hour.
- Cut into 9 equal square pieces.
- Serve immediately or store at room temperature in an air-tight container.
