Sev Ki Barfi


  • 200gm thin sev (prefer unsalted).
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 ltr full fat milk reduced to 250 ml
  • 7-8 Saffron strands soaked in 1 tbsp milk
    Garnish: Sliced Almonds


  1. Boil milk on low flame, add cardamom powder and saffron.
  2. Allow it to reduce slowly on low flame, until 1/4 of the original quantity.
  3. Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves,take it off from heat.
  4. Blend the reduced milk with a blender to get smooth consistency (optional)
  5. In a non stick pan, add the reduced milk mixture,allow it heat up a bit.
  6. turn off the gas , add the 'sev' to the mix, mix very slowly.
  7. After 5 minutes, once the 'sev' has absorbed the moisture,spread the mix in a tray lined with baking paper.
  8. Garnish with almond, allow it to be set in the refrigerator.

Note: Look for a plain thin 'sev' , not as thin as nylon 'sev' and that too unsalted. You can also use a salted 'sev'. Traditionally , this sweet is prepared with 'mava'.To make with mawa mix 150 gms of mava with 1/2 cup warm water. You canĀ  also reduce the milk at home, just like we prepare rabri.
