Walnut Barfi

There are many variety of barfi made with different nuts, flours and even fruits. But I never heard of walnut barfi until I tasted this at a relatives place for the first time and it tasted very delicious and yummy. Once could never guess that the main ingredient in the barfi was walnuts. I wanted to try this barfi for Diwali, so immediately called them up and got the recipe for the walnut barfi.

I have always been hesitant to try out Indian sweets. Its a bit tricky business, you need to achieve the one-string consistency and then know exactly when to remove from heat and transfer to a greased plate. Nevertheless, keeping aside my fears, I gave it a try. And see the result, delicious melt-in-mouth barfi!


Yields 15 medium pieces

Indian sweet made with walnuts and almonds


¾ cup walnuts
¼ cup almond / badam
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup water
2 tsp ghee


1. Roast the walnuts and almonds for 4-5 minutes. Allow it cool and grind them into smooth powder. Grease a plate/tray with ghee and keep it ready.

2. Heat a non stick pan over medium heat and add sugar and water. Mix well till sugar dissolves completely. Keep stirring and cook till one string consistency is reached. (See Notes)

3. Now add the walnut-badam powder and mix well. Keep stirring till the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan.

4. At this stage add ghee and keep stirring until it thickens and forms a mass. Remove from heat and immediately pour into the greased tray.

5. Flatten the mixture with a spatula and allow it cool for few minutes. Cut into your desired shape while it is slightly warm.

My Notes:

1. To check one string consistency, wet your fingers and take a drop of syrup in between your thumb and index finger. If a single string is formed between the fingers, it means syrup has reached one string consistency.

2. The barfi was not too sweet, so if you want more sweet add 1 cup sugar.
