Creamy Barfi Fudge

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Creamy Barfi Fudge. Barfi is a traditional Pakistani sweet. Usually we buy it from shops, but I tried to make it at home. The taste was the same but the texture was a bit soft and more like a fudge - perfect to eat with a spoon!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Sugar
2. Water
3. Butter
4. Cardamom Powder or Seeds
5. Milk Powder

Bismillah, let's start!

The measurement used for this recipe is a normal tea cup.

Take 3/4 cup sugar

Place the sugar into a pan.

Take 1/2 cup water.

Add the water to the sugar. Place the pan on a medium heat.

Add 2 ounces butter.

Bring to the boil.

Add 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder. I didn't have any so I used the seeds from 3 green cardamoms. You could crush the seeds if you want.

Add to the mixture in the pan.

Boil the mixture until a thick syrup forms.

Next, take 1 cup milk powder.

Add a little of the milk powder.

Stir to combine.

Add the rest of the milk powder.

Mix to combine.

Keep cooking it until it coats the back of a spoon.

Boil and stir the mixture continuously until it thickens and leaves the side of the pan to form a ball. 

Place the thick mixture into any dish.

Allow it to set for a few hours or overnight in the fridge.

Slice and enjoy with a cup of Pakistani tea!

  1. This was OH MY GOD!!! I have added a bit too much sugar, so it was extra sweet, next time will do exactly as per recipe.
    My husband offered me to start sweet shop :) Last week make Gajar halwa and it was nice, but this one definitely out of this world )))

    Ghori wife

    1. wow, I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe - I'd actually forgotten about it. have a beautiful Ramadan, insha Allah. and, if you do end up with a sweet shop, I want a box of sweets!!

  2. Jus Wow sis..

  3. Salaam A sis this was really nice
    However I made mine too sweet and it became hard not soft, how long should the water mixture boil for on estimate until thick before adding the milk powder? exact measurements would be great if you could upload.

    1. So glad you liked the barfi. Yes, I can imagine that it would be harder with more sugar added. I would say around 5 minutes or so on a medium-high heat. Will try to retest this recipe very soon!
