carrot burfi gajar barfi

red delhi carrots are in season now and time to make various carrot based recipes like carrot paratha, carrot tomato soup, aloo gajar, carrot ginger soup, gajar ka murabba. every year i make gajar halwa with the tender juicy carrots we get in winters. by now i have shared these versions of gajar halwa:

the recipe of carrot burfi is similar to the way gajar halwa is made. here i have used milk powder in the burfi. so obviously the recipe does not have milk or condensed milk or khoya. though you can use any recipe of gajar halwa and make the barfi. you just need to cook more than what we cook for gajar halwa, so that the sugar cooks more and the barfi sets after cooling.

this is a quick recipe and does not take much time, apart from grating carrots. the recipe can also be doubled or tripled.

serve carrot burfi as a sweet or after dinner dessert.

if you are looking for more barfi recipes then do check kaju katli, dry fruits barfi, paneer barfi, mysore pak, coconut barfi and 7 cup barfi recipe.

  1. Hi Dassana
    I want to try making this. How do you store the barfi, in fridge or on countertop. Also how many days will it last?
    Thanks
