The only thing really weird about this week's topic is the name: Barfi. Most people can't get past the name. Well, too bad for them because it's absolutely delicious (more for me & Kris!) Barfi is an milk-based Indian sweet commonly served during holidays and festivals, but we're happy to eat it anytime as a snack.
So bring some barfi to a party and watch it disappear (just don't tell your friends what it's called).
If anyone out there has a good authentic milk barfi recipe, please contact me at email@example.com
Update: I just received a very informative comment from Amalik about barfi:
"It's pronounced burr-fee, so the name should not be an issue. There are a million different types of barfi, made from each different grain and even some that are cheese based. They are not all milk-based."
Thanks for your comment, Amalik!
