Thandai Barfi Recipe | Holi Special Dry Fruit Barfi | Thandai Dry Fruit Burfi with step by step photo and video recipe. indian festivals are an integral part of our life and it is incomplete with the associated sweets and desserts. there are so many sweets within the indian sweet and dessert category which can be either generic or purpose-based sweet. we are always keen on purpose-based sweets and Holi Special Dry Fruit Thandai Barfi Recipe is one such popular indian sweet dessert.

i am not a huge fan of indian sweets. well, it’s not because of the taste, but because of the ingredients and the way it is prepared. in other words, i do not have any complaints about the taste but am overwhelmed with the calories it carries. this is my recent development and these days i prefer healthier with less or no sugar or with sugar alternatives like jaggery or dates. in this i have added a considerable amount of sugar yet, it is one of my personal favourites. it is loaded with dry fruits, which would basically help to provide the required energy and nutrients, especially after the tiring holi play. sugar also helps to provide glucose to your body and thus helping to regain energy. in addition to the holi, it has a good shelf life so that you can share it with friends and family even after holi season.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the Thandai Barfi Recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shown how to prepare a thandai mix powder first and then use it for barfi recipe. well, it may be an unnecessary step if you are preparing only barfi, but can be beneficial if you are planning thandai milk too. secondly, the thandai mix or even the drink is a mix of sweetness and spice as we are using pepper to prepare the mix. well, this combination is the core of this drink and sweet, but if you prefer to be less spicy, you may reduce it as per your taste bud. lastly, these barfis can easily last long for a couple of days if refrigerated. however, it is recommended to finish it as soon as possible due to fact that milk powder is used.
