Apple Crumble and Custard Barfi - Rakhri 2020

Apple Crumble and Custard Barfi


I have saved my favourite until the end, I love the flavours of apple crumble and custard and could not wait to turn this into a barfi. The result was way better than expected, the crumble mixture actually reminded me a bit of the texture of pajiri ( an after birth snack used to aid milk consumption).

I am so glad when these crazy ideas actually work, as we all know they can always go either way.
This recipe has a lot more ingredients in than my other two but I really do think its worth the extra effort. I used a ready made crumble mixture for this, which I think worked really well and saved me some time, but feel free to make it from scratch using butter and flour.
