Khoya barfi made with homemade khoya got from ghee leftovers.

Desi ghee is an essential part of an Indian household. All over India, desi ghee/ Ghee/ clarified butter is extensively used not only for cooking medium but it’s also considered pious and sacred and hence only Desi ghee is used for all Vedic yajna reetis. With many options available in the market, still many people prefer to make it at home as it gives not only gives a sense of satisfaction of enjoying the purest form of ghee, but is also cost effective.There are many simple ways to make homemade ghee.

 

 

Methods of making ghee are 1. From Malai 2. From Butter 3.Few people add yoghurt to malai as “jaag” and let it stand overnight, they consider it to give the best results in terms of clarity and least leftover khoya. I personally like the second method as it leaves behind least of impurities and also gives out a good quantity of ghee as well.

Although, there is no proof or measurement that either of the methods are better than the other two, still different people follow different ways. The first method being the easiest and least of efforts.

Ghee from malai. In this method you put the whole malai/cream straight to the kadhai/bowl to heat and let it cook on simmer till the ghee separates and you have the residue khoya which turns into dark brown color.This method does give you a good amount of khoya as leftover.

I always used to give away the khoya to my house helps, until now when I decided to make something out of it.An extremely easy recipe was born!

Let me admit, it tasted exactly like “Mathura peda”which invariably is a hot favorite of mine. When I made it ,I just made it to try out, but after having it tasted by a few foodies, I got a certificate of a Fabulous dish “yummy ..this is like market bought”…you should start selling them lady and etc.It gave me immense satisfaction along with pleasure that I got by biting into these rich healthy Indian squares.

These Khoya Barfis can be made in the form of ladoos as well. But I personally like Barfis as I just love the silver work applied on them. They look beautiful as well as there are health benefits too. These can be eaten even in Vrats /Upwas/Fasting as they are made from pure khoya. So here is the very simple recipe of the decadent Khoya Barfis!
