1 ½ Cup Desiccated Coconut
¼ Cup Milk Powder
10-12 Kesari Saffron Strands
1 ½ Tbsp Warm Water
1 Tsp Ghee, for greasing
Chopped Nuts, for garnish
Saffron Strands, for garnish
In a blender, add mangoes along with corn flour and blend to form a puree.
Add the puree to a non-stick pan and cook over medium-low heat. Add sugar and mix well until dissolved.
Next, add coconut and mix well. Continue to cook for 7-8 minutes, while stirring in between.
In the meantime, add warm water to a small bowl and add saffron to it. Let it infuse for a couple of minutes.
Add milk powder to the mango-coconut mix and mix instantly so that no lumps are formed. Add the saffron water and mix well.
Cook for 12-15 minutes or until the mix has become thick and has a consistency of a dough. Add more coconut if the mix is too wet.
Once cooked, grease a square dish or plate with edges with ghee and transfer the barfi mix into the greased dish. Spread the mix evenly into the dish and smooth the surface.
Let it cool for a few minutes, garnish with chopped nuts and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
Then cut into bite sized squares and serve immediately.
