Aam-Narkol Barfi / Mango-Coconut Barfi

Barfi is a special kind of Indian dessert that is very popular in India all across the country. Basic base is milk and cottage cheese but in modern times lot of improvisation is done. I made with Mango and added grated coconut with it to raise it to next level. Mango being the King of fruit, what better way to improvise. Adding grated coconut gave a different texture and flavour. It’s soft, spongy but not sticky. I am happy I am sharing the lovely recipe with my foodie friends
