Kesaria Milk Barfi Recipe
- 2 cups Milk Powder
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/3 cup condensed milk
- 1/3 cup Ghee
- 8-10 pieces Almonds cut into slivers
- Few Pistachios cut into slivers
- Pinch yellow food color
- Few strands of saffron/kesar
- Take a deep bowl and put milk powder, milk and mix it well till no lumps.
- Milk powder paste is ready. Keep aside.
- Take 2 tbsp of lukewarm milk and soak a few strands of saffron. This way you will get nice flavor and color. Keep aside.
- Put yellow color in a small bowl and mix it well by adding little water. You can also add color with saffron milk.
- Take a non-stick pan, put ghee and melt it on low flame.
- Once ghee melts add the paste of milk powder and stir it well. I have made the paste but you can also add milk and milk powder directly into the ghee.
- Mix the paste well with ghee on low flame. Stir continuously otherwise paste may get burned.
- Keep on stirring continuously on low flame till the mixture becomes thick.
- After 2-3 minutes you will see the paste has absorbed all the ghee and it looks just like khoya.
- After a few minutes add condensed milk, mix it well and cook on medium flame. You can also add sugar instead of condensed milk.
- Add soaked saffron milk and water of food color, mix it well.
- Add chopped almonds and pistachios, mix it well and cook till the mixture becomes semi thick.
- When the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan, switch off the flame and check the right consistency of the mixture.
- To check the right consistency put a small portion of the mixture in a plate and roll it. If it becomes like a ball it means the mixture is ready.
- Take a plate or tray or any baking dish to set barfi.
- Grease the dish with little ghee to make it non-sticky.
- Transfer milk powder mixture in a greased baking tray, press it gently and spread uniformly with the help of a spatula.
- Garnish it with some chopped pistachios, almonds and saffron.
- Press it gently with a spatula so that nuts get to stick with the mixture.
- Leave it to cool down for some time.
- Grease the sharp knife with some ghee to make it non-sticky
- Cut into slices and serve.
- Milk powder barfi is ready.
