Making barfis can be quite hard on a hectic day, because you got to focus a lot on it and should remember the measurements of whole lot of stuff. But there is one recipe which breaks all these rules and taste so much better than the regular barfi. The recipe for this so easy to remember. The rule is to remember a cup, Take a cup and use that to measure all the ingredients..You need 1 cup of besan, milk, ghee, coconut.. but the sugar amount should be thrice,ie, 3 cup. Totally all the ingredient should be a total of 7 cup. Hence the name.
So make this barfi using a single cup and you would be glad you did that.
Cooking Time : 15 - 20 mins
Makes - 9-10 pieces
I used 100 ml ramekins as my measuring bowl
Gram Flour / Besan / Kadalai mavu - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Coconut - 1/2 cup grated
Carrot - 1/2 cup grated
Sugar - 3 cups
Take a non stick kadai. Add ghee to it and start roasting gram flour in it. Cook them for a couple of mins.
Grease a tray with ghee and set aside.
Now add in sugar, milk, carrot, coconut,ghee to this and mix well.
Turn the heat to a high and let it come to a boil.
Once it starts to bubble up. Turn the heat to a medium and cook it for 10-15 mins till you see the mixture gets thick and foamy and starts to leave the sides.
Transfer the mixture to the greased tray and allow it to cool for 30 mins.
Now cut them into squares and enjoy.
1)You can leave the carrots and use only coconut or vise versa.
2)if you cook it for more time,the barfi will be little harder. My barfis were softer.
