palkova barfihalkova recipe – 90’s kids favourite sweet | palkova barfi | maida barfi with step by step photo and video recipe. there has been several snacks and dessert recipes that were super popular in the 90’s era. gradually it has lost its charm and perhaps not liked much with the new generation and hence not much appreciated. one such 90’s favourite dessert snack is halkova recipe or also known as palkova recipe known for its crisp taste and mouth-melting texture.

as i was explaining, there are so many candies, sweets or snacks which were super popular, but somehow are losing their popularity. these were generally local brand or natively sourced and produced for the native audience. but it is losing its charm against the big brand and its glamour. moreover, these 90’s snacks and sweets were sold in small shops or kirani stores, which are difficult to spot these days. it is either supermarket stores or chain of grocery marts these days and perhaps only sell branded stuff. hence the only option to reminisce about these is to make it at home and pass it on to the next generations. i believe no recipes should end its life cycle without much opportunity provided to prove itself.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variations to halkova recipe. firstly, the recipe is just made with a combination of 3 main ingredients, i.e maida, sugar and ghee. you may easily experiment with other ingredients like cocoa powder, dry fruits, raisins and coconut. secondly, these dessert snacks easily last long for a week or two. having said that, it has to be preserved in an airtight container for better shelf life. lastly, if you wish to have a more brittle and solid texture to the barfi you may prepare one string of sugar syrup which would make the barfi harder. note that i have not prepared sugar syrup and you may add it if it is required.

finally, i do request you to check my other indian sweets recipes collection with this post of halkova recipe. it mainly includes my other related recipes like besan peda, energy balls, aloo ka halwa, carrot delight, chocolate barfi, mini rasgulla, coconut peda, besan milk cake, kaju katli, milk barfi. further to these i would also like to mention my other related recipe categories like,
