Recipe Of The Month: Barfi

Barfi is a local fudge that is milky and sweet to the core. With a combination of chocolate and peanut butter, make this Barfi extra special this Eid.



  • 20g unsalted butter
  • 400g condensed milk
  • 100ml double cream
  • 4 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 200g milk powder
  • 60g flaked almonds
  • 75g dark chocolate chips


  • Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Add the condensed milk and double cream, then add the peanut butter and mix thoroughly for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is well combined.
  • Add the milk powder a little at a time, whisking thoroughly until the mixture becomes a smooth fudge consistency. Add half the almonds and mix.
  • Line an 11×8 baking dish with greaseproof paper and pour the barfi mixture into the dish. Flatten the mixture, allow it to cool to room temperature, then top with the chocolate chips and the remaining almonds.
  • Refrigerate the Barfi for 6–8 hours until the barfi has set. Cut into squares and serve.
