Coconut Barfi Recipe
Barfi is a sweet confection from the Indian subcontinent. Plain barfi is made from condensed milk, cooked with sugar until it solidifies. The many varieties of barfi include besan barfi made with gram flour, kaaju barfi made with cashews, and pista barfi made with ground pistachios. The name is derived from the Persian word barf which means “snow”, since barfi is similar to ice or snow in appearance.
Though it originated in Persia, barfi was introduced to India and Pakistan during the Mughal Empire in the 16th century. The confection became very popular in South Asia, where it is now commonly served at festivals such as Holi and Diwali.
