Remember that all barfis take some time to set into solid form, so schedule it accordingly. You can make them a day in advance and store them in the fridge. As they use dairy products and sometimes fresh ingredients too, most barfis do not have a long shelf-life, so keep them in the fridge and consume within a day or two.

Nut-based Barfis

Nuts feature commonly in Indian sweets. They usually give the mithai a nice and satiating mouth-feel, as well as a pleasant nutty flavour. Several barfis can be made with nuts as the main ingredient, along with a little sugar and if required a little ghee.

Usually, since nuts like almond and cashew have some amount of oil content, these barfis will not require much ghee. And when ingredients like anjeer or dates are coupled with the nuts, the requirement of sugar also goes down.

Anjeer-and-Mixed-Nut-BarfiAnjeer and Mixed Nut Barfi

The Pista Barfi is a rich and delightful barfi with an attractive green colour, while the Anjeer and Mixed Nuts Barfi has a nice crunch that surprises you! When you cannot decide which nut to prefer, go for the Dry Fruit Barfi, which brings them all together to make a splendorous treat!
