There are times when you realize that you needed some mithai for the next day’s morning puja and you forgot, this situation comes to very often where I’ll remember the whole day but while going to the market it’s gone from my head… I know you’ll say make list on the phone, but the lazy me thinking I won’t forget. Haha…. so in such situations why not make something homemade.
Homemade stuff as we all know is super good. Taste-wise and hygiene wise also.
So this barfi is also the last moment effort for the next day’s Navratri (Chaitra)
Easy and quick in making, the only thing is that the mixture gets sticky but that won’t spoil the mithai from making, once it’s in the refrigerator to set.
I have used roohafza syrup here you can skip it if you want, but the taste won’t affect much.
Again food colour is optional, I wanted the sweet to look pinker so added you can skip this as well.
Garnish varies from person to person you can use any dry fruit of your choice, my kids love cashews so using this.
Do remember to use grated dry coconut at times the smell changes if it is old enough.
