Barfi

When you are going to the Hindu temple and you want to make a sweet offering, then why not make this temple favorite Barfi!

Growing up I always saw my grandmother whip up some Barfi as a offering for the temple and today I see my mother-in-law doing the same thing and now I was curious to see how its made, so I learned as well. This recipe is really easy to make and delicious to eat!
