soft & tender carrot barficarrot delight recipe | soft & tender carrot barfi | carrot sweet recipes with step by step photo and video recipe. carrot-based sweets are ultra-popular among indians and are made for different reasons. the best part of using carrot in any sweet is its naturally sourced sweetness in it which would help a lot to flavour the end result. one such hugely popular sweet recipe is the carrot delight recipe known for its softness with a mild sweet taste and coconut coating flavour.

as i was explaining the texture and the look is very similar to any halwa recipes. it is chewy, soft and gelly. but this cannot be called halwa as the name is already taken by the other popular indian carrot halwa. the other near available indian name is barfi, which does not tick all the boxes, yet it is termed as barfi recipe. having said that it is also popularly known as carrot delight which is more appropriate as this recipe sits in between the halwa and barfi. moreover, the coconut coating applied on top of the sweet, makes it even more desirable. it balances the carrot flavour to yield a subtle tasty sweet. the desiccated coconut can be easily replaced with other options like dry fruits, chocolate grate or even mawa toppings for other variations.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the carrot delight recipe. firstly, if you prefer to have a softer and more chewy texture, you can achieve it by turning off the heat early. i personally like a chewy one, with neither hard nor soft. secondly, you may shape this sweet as per your preference. you may shape it like gulab jamun, square barfi, donut or even like laddu shape. lastly, i personally like the coconut toppings for this sweet with a combination of carrot and coconut flavour. but you may very well have other toppings, like pista powder, badam powder or even the milk chocolate grate for a different flavour.
