Doda Barfi

Doda or Dodha barfi is milk and dried fruits based fudge that is quite popular in North India.This particular sweet is loaded with nuts and tastes heavenly.
The procedure of making Doda barfi is a little longer,but believe me it’s all worthwhile once you got to taste this sinful dessert.

My mom is visiting my brother in Seattle .Along with some other stuff,he asked her to bring doda barfi as he loved this Barfi very much.So when he told me he is enjoying the barfi to make me feel jealous,I quoted “I have already made it at home and that is more delicious than the so called Halwai made”.His plan to torture me completely failed and he said all right you got to make some when you will come here.
