7 cups of delight
When chitra ji told me that this barfi can be made in a jiffy, I didn’t believe it and had to make it myself. And gosh, it is true. Very very simple, takes only 12 mins from scratch…. If you don’t believe it, the video is attached as well.
And guess who I caught scraping the bottom of the pan, none other than daddy dearest!
Well, that just means it tastes great.
Please make it and share your experience too!!
1 cup gram flour (besan)
1 cup ghee
1 cup milk
1 cup Finely grated fresh coconut
3 cups sugar (i added slightly less)
Dry roast besan for a couple of minutes till the raw smell vanishes.
Add all the other ingredients, a pinch of saffron and cardamom.
Keep stirring. The ‘stuff’ will turn from gooey to smooth shiny liquid in 3 mins, thicker in 6mins and will start sticking to the sides as a smooth lump in 8 mins. Take it out instantly at that time and pour into a greased pan. Garnish with almonds or other nuts.
