Rajgira Barfi | 7 Cup Barfi For Fasting

I had some farali flours leftover after Navratri that needs to be used up before got spoiled .That’s how these farali barfi were invented.But let me tell you, this incident was my hit and trial case that went well by chance.I wasn’t sure if the barfi would set or not and how would be the taste.

Guess what ! This turned out in a healthy and delicious sweet 7 cup barfi made from amaranth and water chestnut flour.These are gluten free and extremely addictive as well.

And why wait for fasting , you can make them on any festival or function , even for Diwali.
