Barfi or burfi is a sweet confectionery from the Indian subcontinent. The name originates from the Persian word Barf, which means snow. A few of the famous varieties of barfi include Besan Barfi (made with gram flour), Kaaju Barfi (made with cashews), Pista Barfi (made with ground pistachios), and Sing Barfi (made with peanuts). The main ingredients of plain barfis include condensed milk and sugar. The ingredients are cooked in a vessel until the mixture solidifies.
