Pista barfi Recipe - Pista Burfi recipe - Diwali Sweet recipes - Indian Spiced Pistachio Fudge Recipe - Pista Mithai recipe

I wanted to try this nut based barfi / Mithai. I decided to kick start festive recipes with the simple fudge recipe. I am not a big fan of sweets. Every time I take one small piece and I need 2 murukkus. But when it comes to nuts I can take any kind of nuts. Actually my entire family is not a big fan of sweets. So most of the time when I do sweets (other than Kheers) I will distribute it out. However this one we finished in a few days. I have added Koya / Milk solids so it tasted really rich. Do try it out

Pistachio - 1.5 cups
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Milk solids / Koya - 1/4 cup (sugarless)
Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Sugar - 3/4 cup to 1 cup


Soak Pistachi in hot water for 1 hr. Remove the skin
Take this in a mixie / blender / food processor, add coconut, Koya and grind to think paste. Add 2 tablespoon of milk if required
Heat sugar with 1/4 cup of water till double string consistency. Add girnded paste
Mix well. Add cardamom powder. And mix well. Continue to cook till the paste comes together without sticking to the pan
Grease the plate with 1/4 teaspoon of ghee and pour barfi and level it. 
When it is warm to handle slice them and let it cool down completely
Store it in air tight container. If you are going to keep it for more than 2 - 3 days keep it in fridge.
