Pistachio Barfi



Diwali is the celebration of lights, it's a Hindu celebration that spans over four day. The festival is to mark the return of Lord Rama from 14 years in exile and his victory of good over evil. Hindus all over the world celebrate by eating lots of wonderful sweets and savories, visiting family and friends and conducting prayers to the Lord Rama and Goddess Laxmi.

To celebrate Diwali this year I made Pistachio barfi (milk fudge) Barfi is my families all time favorite sweet and there is never an occasion when we do not make it. There are many flavours you can make but pistachio is an all time winner so below I am sharing the recipe for Pistachio Barfi.




Yield: 24 pieces

Pistachio Barfi

Delicious milk fudge make with ground pistachios.
prep time: 10 minscook time: 30 minstotal time: 40 mins

ingredients:

360 g Milk Powder
70 g Ghee (clarified butter)
150 ml skimmed Milk (can use any type)
90 g Coarsely chopped pistachio 
30 g Pistachio slices for garnish

For Sugar Syrup
150 g Sugar
100 ml Water
Few drops green food colouring
1/2 teaspoon pistachio essence

instructions

1. Add the milk and ghee to a glass jug and microwave for 30 seconds to melt the mixture.
2. In a large bowl add the milk powder and add the ghee/ milk mixture and rub it into the milk powder to form a bread crumb type of mixture.
3. In a pan add the water and sugar and bring to boil, simmer the mixture until you get a  one thread consistency sugar syrup. Add the green food colouring and pistachio essence. Turn off heat.
4. Add the milk powder mixture to  a large wok and on a very low heat stir the milk powder for 5 minutes to get rid of the rawness. Keep it stirring on a very low heat as not to burn it.
5. Next add the sugar syrup to the milk powder  and mix until its all incorporated. If the mixture feels dry add 2 tablespoonful of warm milk. (This may not be necessary )
6. Once the mixture comes together. turn off the heat and add in the ground pistachios and mix.
7. Line a square baking try with cling film and pour the mixture in to it. Smooth it out using the back of a spoon and garnish with the pistachio slivers. Press them into the barfi.
8. Leave the barfi to set for 4-5 hours after which cut into squares.
