How to make Churma Barfi

  • Step 1 Mix flour, ghee and milk

    In a mixing bowl, add 2.5 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of ghee. Mix to form a crumbly mixture. Now add milk in batches and mix with your hands to make a dough-like mixture. The mixture will feel a bit dry but don’t worry about it.

  • Step 2 Make muthiyas

    Take a portion of the mixture and press between your hand to make a muthiya. Make more such muthiyas with the mixture. The pieces can be irregular, don’t worry about the shape as we have to ultimately crush them after frying.

  • Step 3 Fry the muthiyas

    Heat oil in a kadhai. Deep-fry the muthiyas until golden in colour.

  • Step 4 Grind to make a powder

    Now grind all the fried muthiyas to make a powder. Pass the mixture through a sieve to attain a fine powder.

  • Step 5 Make jaggery syrup

    Add jaggery to a pan and keep on medium flame. Let it melt completely. Mix in 1/2 cup of ghee. Now add khoya and mix until all the ingredients combine together to form a thick mixture.

  • Step 6 Make barfi mixture

    Mix jaggery mixture with powdered muthiyas. Mix to form a gooey mixture.

  • Step 7 Pour into mould and set

    Add the mixture to a tin or mould and spread with 1-2 inch thickness. Garnish with chopped pistachios and let it set for 2-3 hours.

  • Step 8 Cut into barfis and serve

    Once the barfis hold shape, cut into pieces and serve.
