Barfi is a traditional Indian subcontinent sweet dish normally milk based, the name derives from Barf which means snow and the main ingredients are normally milk powder, condensed milk and sugar. This can then be flavour with nuts, fruits and spices such as cardamon and topped with edible gold or silver leaf. Often given as gifts and eaten at times of celebration such as weddings, festivals and new blessings. The flavour and textures are similar to fudge or nougat.
One of my favourite chocolates, a crisp honeycomb covered in milk chocolate, also a great choice for any nut allergy sufferers as it does not contain any. I love making the extra effort when it comes to special times of the year and making things homemade. This Barfi was a great success and have glowing reviews so I would love to hear all your feedback on it.
