Coconut and mixed nut barfi.

Coconut and mixed nut barfi- A quick and easy no cook barfi .Desiccated coconut and crunchy nuts delicately fragranced with cardamom powder and sweetened with rich condensed milk.

1.5 cups dessicated coconut
¾ cup coarsely chopped nuts (cashew, almonds and brazil nuts)
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon cardamom powder (elachi)
Almond halves for garnishing


1. In a bowl add the desiccated coconut, chopped nuts and cardamom powder. Mix.
2. Stir in the condensed milk and make a stiff mixture. (Can add a little more coconut if mixture seems too sticky)
3. If you want to make barfi in squares, then grease a thali or tray with ghee and pat the coconut barfi mixture in it.
4. Smooth the surface with the back of a spoon and garnish with almond halves pushing them into the barfi slightly so that they stick. Refrigerate for 1 hour, after this cut to desired shape.
5. Alternately if you wish to make shaped barfi as I have done then wrap the coconut mix in cling film and refrigerate for 30 mins after step 2.
6. After 30 minutes take two large sheets of kitchen foil, place the chilled barfi mixture on one sheet and cover with second sheet.
7. Using a rolling pin gently roll out the mixture to approx 1 cm thick. Remove the top sheet of foil and using cookie cutter cut out desired shapes and place barfi shapes on serving dish.
8. Roll up remaining mixture and repeat step 7 again till all mixture is used up.
9. Place almond halves on your barfi shapes and press slightly to stick. Chill barfi for 1 hour before serving.

NB- You can use any combination of nuts, also you can add few drops of food colouring if you wish to have coloured barfi.

Keep refrigerated and consume with in 3-4 days.
