Barfi recipes – Collection of 18 burfi recipes. Barfi or burfi is a basic fudge from Indian cuisine that is made using full fat milk, sugar and ghee. Traditionally it was made by condensing milk for several hours, later sweetened and cooked until a thick consistency was reached. It was then pressed down in a tray, garnished with nuts and cut to squares or rectangles.

Based on the traditional method, many kinds of barfi are made in these modern days. Ingredients like khoya/mawa, condensed milk, milk powder, coconut and even flour are used as an alternate to condensing milk for hours.

I have shared several barfi recipes on the blog in the past. I have compiled all of them here in this post just for quick access.
