Milkmaid Chocolate Barfi | How to make chocolate barfi using condensed milk

What is Chocolate Barfi?

Barfi, also known as barfee or burfi, is Indian fudge made with milk, sugar and a flavoring agent. Barfi is an easy dessert and is often prepared for festivals etc. This recipe uses the combined form of milk and sugar i.e. condensed milk. With condensed milk, the process becomes very simple and quick. Barfi made using condensed milk has a different texture than the barfi made with mawa. It is fudgier. And that’s what we love about this milkmaid chocolate barfi. It is a nice break from the regular chocolate barfi.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Chocolate Barfi

Condensed milk: It is easily available in the Indian stores. However, I have used homemade condensed milk. Whenever I have some leftover milk, I like to convert it to condensed milk and increase its shelf life many folds. And thereafter use it for my dessert recipes or even chai.

Cocoa Powder: Good quality cocoa powder should be used. Your chocolate barfi will be as good as your cocoa powder.

Sugar: I have used granulated sugar for the recipe. But I would recommend using powdered sugar as granulated sugar did not dissolve totally and there was a slight bite in the barfi.

Other ingredients: Ghee (clarified butter) in little quantity has been used to cook the mixture of barfi and sliced pistachios have been used for garnishing. I don’t like to add nuts to the barfi as I like its smooth and fudgy texture. However, if you want a bite in the barfi you can add nuts of your choice. You can add up to ½ cup of nuts such as almonds, pistachios, cashews, walnuts, etc. For best results, roast the nuts before use.

Well, I don’t have many barfis on the blog… hey, why so?! I’ll make more barfi and post them. They are so simple to make and totally delectable. However, there is a classic barfi i.e. seven cup barfi. Likewise, a deserted barfi i.e. hare chane ki barfi is also on the blog.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
