Today marks the 8th day of the Chaitra Navratri, which is known as Durga Ashtami… I always prepare the Prasad personally. So tried the Makhana and Gur ki Barfi as an offering this time. Specially prayed for strength for all of humanity to get through these times and emerge victorious as one community in the face of adversity. ~ Happy to share details of the recipe, if you’d like to make this sweet at home too. Also, can be had during the fast: ~ Ingredients: • 1 1/2cups Roasted makhana (Fox Nuts) • 1/2 cup Roasted chopped cashews • 1/2 cup Roasted chopped almonds • 2 tbsp Roasted pistachios • 3 tbsp crushed Flaxseeds • 1 tsp crushed saunf (fennel seeds) • 4 crushed elaichi (green cardamom) • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut ~ Sweet syrup: • 1 cup water • 1 cup jaggery (gur) • 4 tbsp sugar • 4 green crushed elaichi • Grease a plate with ghee ~ Instructions: 1. Remove the outer skin of the cardamoms and grind them in the mortar. 2. Grease the tray, plate or a small thali with ghee. Keep aside. 3. Heat a wok, dry roast the makhana for about two-three minutes on medium heat. Then, crush them roughly. This can be done in a grinder. 4. Dry roast the nuts & seeds on medium heat for about a minute. Then, grind the nuts & seeds coarsely in the grinder. 5. Now, add the desiccated coconut in grounded nuts & seeds and puffed makhana. 6. Boil the jaggery, sugar, elaichi, and water in a wok/pan. After the first boil, reduce the heat and boil the sweet syrup till it thickens and makes two string syrup. (Two string syrup means that you take a drop of syrup between your two fingers and then stretch the fingers - if the syrup that sticks between the two fingers is making two threads (or strings) then the thickness of syrup is appropriate. Takes about 7-8 mins.) 7. Now, add the roasted nuts & seeds, makhane, coconut powder, and cardamom, mix well, cook till the mixture absorbs the sweet syrup. Takes about 2 minutes on medium-low heat. 8. Now, turn off the heat and set the mixture on the greased tray. Let the mixture cool down, takes about 8-10 minutes. Now, cut the burfi in required shape. . . . . . #ChaitraNavratri #20DaysofGratefulness #Day7 #stayindoors #staysafe #stayhome
