7 cup, actually 6 cup barfi this Diwali

7er 6cup barfi

Happy Diwali everyone. Lots of sweets, fun and joy on this festival of lights. 

I missed the boat when 7 cup barfi was all the rage. My introduction came this summer when a cousin brought some and it was so good! I immediately made a mental note to try it this year. And what perfect time to try it than Diwali, right?

The process is straightforward and after all the stirring it was rewarding to put this in your mouth even when it is not cooled all the way.

I made a few rounds mostly to tweak the sugar amount and to try taking coconut out with other ingredients. I ended up with almond meal and about 2 cups and 2 tbspoon of sugar.

I would have taken sugar out more but was not sure of if the barfi would set.

Ingredients:
(makes about 10-12medium sized barfis)

1 cup besan/chickpea flour
1 cup ghee
1 cup milk
3/4 cup almond meal/ ground almonds
1/4 cup fresh shredded coconut
2 cup 2 tbspoon sugar

Method:

Sieve the besan and make sure it is smooth.Take some ghee and coat a plate you would be using later. Set it aside.

Take 2-3 tspoon of ghee and roast the chickpea flour till the raw smell disappears.

Take a thick bottomed pan and add the milk and sugar. Mix till it starts bubbling over. Then add the ghee, and start adding in the besan/checkpea flour, almond meal and the coconut slowly few tbspoons at a time.

It will be quite watery. Don't worry it will start to thicken soon.

Keep stirring as soon as it started to thicken. Make sure there are no lumps or sticking at the bottom.

Once it starts leaving the sides and comes together, take it off the heat and out it on the ghee-coated plate. Use a spatula to flatten the mixture and then let it cool. Cut it in squares or diamond shape and it's ready.
