Mango Barfi

Mango Barfi – a quick and delicious, fudgy barfi made of mangoes and milk powder.

Mango, the king of fruits is here.  Apart from indulging in the pulpy, luscious mangoes, there are lots we can make with mangoes. From aamras, mango lassi, mango mastani to exotic desserts, mango can be used to prepare various delicacies.

Mango barfi made with mango puree and milk powder is an easy and quick dessert. I have used fresh mango puree (Alphonso mangoes)  to make these barfis. This can be substituted with frozen mango pulp too. So, do try this recipe and make the most of mangoes before the end of mango season.  Here’s the recipe for Mango Barfi:


2 cups fresh mango puree
4 cups milk powder
¾ cup sugar
a pinch of saffron
2 tbsp ghee

For garnishing

Edible silver leaves (optional)
