Coconut & gram flour barfi

I love October & November in India. The air is full of festivity & the entire country is geared up for Navratri followed by diwali! How can I not get in the spirit? After numerous calls to my mom I finally procured her secret barfi recipe and gave it a try. Poor mom, she was with me on skype call throughout the entire process & I simply bugged her with my insane questions. Well, barfi turned out into a melt-in-mouth delight and here I am munching merrily on it and writing my blog post :)

Nick named as seven cup barfi here are the ingredients required-

1 cup Gram flour/besan
1 cup grated coconut
1 cup ghee/clarified butter
3 cups sugar
1 cup full cream milk

Additional touch-

cardamom powder
cashew nuts & raisins for decoration


In a non-stick pan, add ghee (clarified butter) around 1 tbsp and gently roast the gram flour on a low flame. Keep tossing the flour for a couple of seconds till it loses its raw flavor. Add grated coconut and mix the flour with the coconut for few minutes. Add sugar, milk and only half a cup of ghee (retain the other half for later) to the pan. Keep mixing all the ingredients on a medium flame for 10 to 15 minutes. Ensure there are no lumps and all the ingredients have been incorporated well. Add the remaining half cup of clarified butter/ghee and mix well. Add cardamom powder and stir till the mixture starts thickening. Once the mixture thickens switch off the gas and dunk the contents on a greased plate. Before it completely sets, cut them into desired shapes. Decorate it with cashew nuts & raisins and watch it simply melt in your mouth....oops, there goes another barfi in my mouth ;)
