Rose, whether as a fragrance or a flavour, emanates a sense of coolness! Naturally, this mouth-melting Rose Barfi is also a chilled dessert, which needs to be refrigerated before serving. This mithai has the power to melt the hardest heart, because it combines the creaminess of paneer and mava with the sweet essence of rose. It requires practically no preparation if you have the ingredients on hand. You need to plan in advance just to provide for an hour’s refrigeration.

A yummy healthy sweet treat made in a jiffy. I think its best consumed within 8 hours of preparation and keep it refrigerated till serving.
