milk barfi recipe | milk burfi | plain barfi recipe | doodh ki mithai with a detailed photo and video recipe. a classical milk-based fudge or dessert recipe made with evaporated milk solids and milk powder. it is a perfect dessert sweet snack for the festival season and can be easily shared with friends and family. generally, milk-based barfi is made with just evaporating full cream milk, but to hasten the cooking process i have used milk powder which should add more texture to the sweet.

diwali festival is around the corner and most of us are getting ready for it by preparing sweets, snacks and also new clothes. with respect to sweet, we always look for something easy and simple recipe, yet it must be considered as a premium sweet. most of the premium sweets are either complex to make or may require some fancy ingredient to make. hence i thought of making a creamy barfi recipe with a basic ingredient available in all our kitchen. it is none other than full cream milk. so basically i have evaporated the milk to form the milk solids and added full cream milk powder to get the crumbly texture. as an alternative to milk solids, you can use store-bought khoya or mawa to have the same result. this should easily cut down the stirring process.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the instant milk barfi recipe. firstly, you need to use full cream milk for this recipe. do not even attempt it with skim milk as it would take more time to evaporate and also end up with fewer solids. secondly, if you need a moist barfi, then make sure not to overcook the burfi mixture. the below-mentioned quantity would yield a moist one. but if you overcook, you may end up with chewy burfi. lastly, you may top this barfi with a choice of dry fruits. my personal favourite combination is pistachios and almonds. but you may extend it to tutti frutti, cherries and even to peanuts and cashew nuts.
