Sapna Shaw's Secret Indian Recipe !
Serves: 
4

Preparation Time: 
10 Min
Cooking Time: 
10 Min

Complexity: 
Very Easy


Ingredients: 
Safed Til (White Sesame seeds) – 100 grams
Khoya/ Mawa (Condensed milk) – 200 grams
Sugar – 100 grams
Water – 1 cup and 1/2 cup
Directions: 
Grate the Mawa in a bowl and keep aside.
Make a sugar syrup in a wide pan by boiling sugar and water together for 5 mintues. We do not need one string sugar syrup like we do when we usually make Indian sweets.
After 5 mintues, add grated mawa and sesame seeds. Continue to stir as the mixture becomes a little sticky. You need to cook it on high flame till the excess water evaporates and you get the right consistency….consistency where you see the mixture leaving the sides of the pan and you can set it on a plate and cut Barfi.
Once you get the right consistency, pour it on a greased plate and let it set for few hours. Cut into Barfi/ Diamond shape and enjoy.
Footnotes: 
I like the raw taste of Sasame seeds, if you do not, then dry raost it for 1 mintue before adding it to mawa.
