Coconut /thengai Barfi/fudge – diwali sweets recipe

Now I feel more and more confident each time I make barfi ,though I do feel a little nervous judging the consistency when the barfi sets. It came right this time too. I made this on the janmashtami day. Actually, a lot of delicacies are made on this day. It includes appam, murruku,thattai,seedai, aval and many others. I could not make anything more than appam and aval and of course the barfi. I couldn’t take pictures of the appam and aval as I made them just before the pooja and then I did not have time later that day to do it.


However I could take pictures of the barfi. Here’s how I made the fudge.
