When I first learned how to cook this delicious dessert, I was so taken up by how easy it was, I made it every excuse I could find! You'll see why if you try it.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups full cream milk powder
  • 300 ml thickened/ double/ heavy cream
  • One 400 gm can of condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped skinless pistachios

How to Make It

  • Mix all the ingredients (except the nuts) in a rectangular microwave safe bowl and whisk till smooth.
  • Put the bowl in the microwave and set the time for 6 minutes on the High setting. Start and run the microwave. Watch the dish carefully and if the mixture looks like it might boil over, stop immediately and wait for 8-10 seconds. Start again and run till the 6-minute time is up.
  • Take the dish out of the microwave and stir well to break all lumps (these lumps are the milk solids that are beginning to form due to the cooking).
  • Put the dish back in the microwave and set again on High for 6 minutes. Watch for the initial minute and then allow to continue cooking. When the time is up, sprinkle the chopped nuts over the surface of the Barfi and let sit/ rest for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes remove from the microwave and cut into 2 to 2 1/2-inch squares. Serve immediately or after cooling to room temprature.

Important: This time and High setting suggestion is for a 900-watt microwave. Adjust timing and setting to suit the wattage of your microwave.
