Chocolate almond barfi

Chocolate almond barfi

Happy Diwali everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful celebrations with your friends and family. It was wonderful to get friends and family spend some time together.

This Diwali, I decided to make this dessert on an impulse - Chocolate almond barfi or fudge. The texture was indeed fudge-like, not the kora pak we Bengalis like to call it. Chewy with the almond and chocolate, it was quite delicious.

I even added in some white chocolate chips on top to entice the little ones, but they stayed away. The adults, on the other hand, all enjoyed the barfi.

Festivals have a way of bringing up all the food memories of sharing food during festivals, people who made it special, and of eating and cooking. I was on my way back from work and I heard a cookbook author on NPR echo those same thoughts.

And Fall is full of these festivals and celebrations. Birthdays, Diwali, soon Thanksgiving and Christmas. How do you like to celebrate these special moments?

(makes about 12-15 squares)
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup besan or chickpea flour
2 tbspoon cocoa powder
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup ghee
1 1/2 cup sugar

Take some ghee and coat a plate you would be using later. Set it aside.

Then, take a tbspoon of ghee and heat it on a thick bottomed pan. Roast the chickpea flour till the raw smell disappears. Set it aside.

Add the sugar in the pan along with the milk. Once the sugar dissolves, add in the ghee. Then slowly, a few tbspoons at a time, add in the almond flour, chickpea flour, cocoa powder. Make sure to mix it well together so there are no lumps.

Keep stirring the mix for about 10-15 minutes on medium low heat till it leaves the sides.
