Top 9 Barfi Recipes
The moment somebody mentions the word mithai, Barfi is the first choice that comes to our mind. Barfi is a traditional Indian sweet that is popular all over India, right from South to North. Normally made of milk solids and sugar, laced with spices like cardamom, a barfi might also be made with nuts and other ingredients like coconut. Some barfis are simple, while others are quite elaborate. You can take your pick depending on the occasion. Barfis can be made as prasad for pujas, for entertaining guests, serving at a party, or simply to pamper yourself or your family on a special day!
While some traditional barfis take a long time to prepare, quick-fixes are there to make most of them within minutes. The microwave oven is also very handy when it comes to making barfis. You can make delightful treats within minutes. One thing about making barfis is that many of them require a setting time, to become solid. So, when you go through a recipe, do not just look at the preparation time, give it a glance to see the setting time too. Also remember that when making any Indian sweet, practice makes you perfect. So, do not fret if you do not get it right the first time – although you are most likely to get a perfect barfi if you follow these recipes. Because they contain milk, most barfis have to be consumed within a day or two after preparation, and have to be stored in the fridge too. So, decide on a batch size according to your requirement, and don’t make too much in excess.
