Take inspiration from the following ideas and make Navratri special barfi to celebrate the festival in its most elementary form.

Barfi is an Indian specialty, which took its name from a Persian word barf, meaning snow. There are many variations of barfi that are popular in equal measure, like kaju barfi, badam barfi, besan barfi, pista barfi and so on. Traditionally, barfi is made with condensed milk and sugar, and other ingredients like nuts and fruits can be further added.

Here Are Some Delicious Navratri Special Barfi That You Can Make At Home:

1. Khoye Ki Barfi

This soft, moist barfi is made with khoya, a by-product of milk cream, which is obtained by drying or thickening of whole fat milk. If you like milky sweets, this koya barfi is for you. It is made in clarified butter (ghee) and sweetened with sugar and flavoured with cardamom (elaichi) powder.

3. Singhare Atte ki Barfi

Devotees who observe fast during Navratri have to give up certain classes of foods, including regular grains and flours that we use in everyday cooking. Instead, few kinds of flours like kuttu (buckwheat), rajgira (amaranth flour) or singhara (water chestnut flour) are allowed to be consumed. So, this recipe uses singhara atta to make this vrat-special barfi that tastes as good as any other barfi.
