Coloured Barfi recipe by Farah (Sydney Australia) at PakiRecipes.com.
Simple and easy recipe of burfi which is prepared from milk, sugar and served cut into diamond.
A Pack of powdered milk
2-3 cups of sugar
Few table spoons of ghee 2-3 table spoon blended ilachi (green cardamons)
Few cups of water
Coloured m&ms or smarties to decorate the top of barfi
Sift the powdered milk.
Boil some water then add sugar and let that boil and get into a browny texture.
While your syrup is being cooked mix few table spoons of ghee in the powdered milk and use both hands to mash it to make the ghee dissolve in the powdered milk to give it a pure colour.
Mix some ilachi into the powdered milk and ghee.
Meanwhile keep stirring the sugar syrup and see if the water dries up a little and its turning into a texture of honey.
It has to be slightly like a honey not so sticky as it will be still runny type of syrup.
Now turn off the stove. Use a large wide spoon and stir in the syrup mixing your barfi.
Grab a big tray and spread the barfii all over tray while pressing down then sprinkle some rainbow coloured smarties to give it a festive colour or some nuts of your choice.
Set it in the fridge for hour or so, when its ready cut into small pieces.
