  • 1 Tablespoon Ghee/Clarified butter+little extra for greasing plate

Steps

  1. Grease your plate or pan where you will be removing your barfi dough to cut into shapes. Make almond powder. I prepared the powder at home in the grinder, you can also use store bought one.
  2. Using 3 tablespoons milk, make a thick puree of Dates.
  3. Heat a tablespoon ghee in a saucepan kept on medium high and once the ghee melts, add dates puree. Saute it for about 5 minutes. Add almonds powder and mix well. It should form a nice and dry dough.
  4. Add Coconut and mix well for about 2 minutes. Switch off the flame.
  5. Add cardamom powder and mix.
  6. Remove from heat and pour this barfi mixture on a greased plate or pan. Press and spread it well with spoon. Sprinkle some desiccated coconut on top for garnishing and press with your palm. Give the cuts using knife.
  7. Don’t remove the pieces , let them cool completely and then remove the pieces out and serve.
