Classic Indian Sweet – Revisited & Raw

by lilla on March 25, 2010

raw pistachio burfi with cardamom and vanila

I still remember the sweet shops when I lived in India for a month studying Ashtanga -  neat rows of tantalizing bite-size treats. The shop owners used to laugh at my pronunciation when I placed an order, but I didn’t care. It was worth the humiliation. Washed down with cool coconut water from a freshly cut coco, it was the perfect end to a hard day of yoga and lounging around steamy Mysore.

"Rows of Indian Sweets!"

"Rows of Indian Sweets!"

For the longest time, I thought about recreating burfi (also spelled ‘barfi’ but that sounds so unappetizing – lol) into a raw-ified version and I finally got around to it. Oh my, it’s sooooo good!
