Walnut Barfi, Microwave Walnut Barfi

Bored of the same old pista, badam and kaju barfis? Why not try this mouth-watering Walnut Barfi for a change?

The best part is that this tasty mithai can be prepared in a jiffy using our handy helper, the microwave oven. The milk powder helps to balance the salty flavour of the walnuts very well, resulting in a very exciting contrast.

Take care to crush the walnuts coarsely as that gives the best texture and flavour. If you powder it too finely, it might get a little gooey and bitter as well.

You can also try other desserts using the microwave like Chocolate Mug Cake , Coconut Barfi or Meetha Chawal .

Very quick, easy and tasty recipe...i used pecan instead of walnuts and it turned out great, and garnished it with almond slivers. My family liked it very much. I will defintely make it again for some occasion. Thanks for such a recipe.
