Almond Coconut Barfi (Badam Naral Vadi)

To all the friends and readers of this blog - Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Diwali . Have a safe one!!

Wow can't believe Diwali is already here!!! Its such a joyous time of the year. Friends and families getting together, feasting and enjoying...... just love it.

Today, I am sharing with you a quick and easy barfi recipe. Its another of the must have sweets on a Maharashtrian Diwali Platter. I made this in a microwave, but it can be made on stove top too.

Ingredients: 1 &1/2 cup fresh shredded coconut, 1/2 cup almond powder, 1 cup milk powder dissolved in milk (about a cup), 1 can condensed milk (big), 1/2 cup ghee, 1 tsp crushed cardamoms, 1 tsp saffron strands. I have just used condensed milk for sweetening. If you want more sweetness, you can add a couple of tablespoons of sugar.

Procedure: Put ghee in a heavy bottom pan and when it melts add all the ingredients except crushed cardamom and saffron. Stir till the mixture on medium heat till it starts to leave the sides - about 30-40 mins and then add cardamom and saffron. Grease a plate/tray and set the mixture in it. Cool and cut and store is refrigerator for extended shelf life.

Alternatively you can microwave it in a microwave safe bowl. Stir after every 3 mins and take care it does not run over. When the mixture is little thick, add the crushed cardamoms and Saffron and follow the above steps to cool and cut.

Sharing my Homemade Maharashtrian Diwali Faral Taat: Barfi, Modak, Karanji, Ladoo, Shankarpali, Chivda, Kadbole, Chakli and Shev. I have made Upma which is in the center....... On the first day of Diwali (Narka Chaturdashi) we eat this for breakfast in the morning!

Have a great festival everyone!!! Take care.
