After a recent vote on sweet treats to make, barfi came out top, one of my most popular recipes without a doubt is my Chocolate Crunchie Barfi, which I know a lot of love remaking for special occasions including Rakhi.
Rakhi is a festival often celebrated in summer which marks the relationship between siblings, traditionally a sister will tie a string onto her brother and offer him something sweet to eat with it, in return she will receive a present or money. The significance behind it being he promises to look after her for the year to come.
This recipe for Biscoff Barfi is not very traditional, or prepared in a traditional way but its simple to make and the taste is amazing!! Even if your not a fan of biscoff as a biscuit or spread, in this form along with the touch of cardamon the caramel flavours really work in a barfi.
I love coming up new twists to traditional flavours and really enjoyed creating these three unique ones for Rakhi 2020.
