Two Coloured Coconut Barfi
Indians frequently take barfi as a gift when visiting friends. It is also prepared during Raksha Bandhan. Barfi is a milk treat that can be made with several ingredients - nuts, fruits, flour, and even vegetables! The ground ingredients are cooked with sugar to a fudge-like consistency. In order to give the barfi an attractive look it is often decorated with silver foil.
