Vanilla Barfi Recipe

How to make Vanilla Barfi

Barfi, borfi or burfi is a dense milk based sweet from the Indian subcontinent, and a type of mithai. The name is a derivative of the Persian word barf, which means snow.

A few of the famous varieties of barfi include besan barfi (made with gram flour), kaaju barfi (made with cashews), pista barfi (made with ground pistachios), and sing barfi (made with peanuts).

The main ingredients of plain barfis include condensed milk and sugar. The ingredients are cooked in a vessel until the mixture solidifies.

The flavour of a barfi is often enhanced with fruits (such as mango or coconut) or nuts (such as cashew, pistachio, or peanut) and spices (such as cardamom or rose water).

Barfis are usually coated with a thin layer of edible metallic leaf known as vark. They are typically cut into square, diamond, or round shapes.

The sweet is easily adapted for casual occasions to the most formal event. Different types of barfi vary in their colour and texture.
