Singhara ki barfi( water chestnut flour burfi)

Singara ki barfi does not require much cooking time and is also allow on fasting days.I like the way my mom- in- law sets it in a flat dish and then cuts it into neat squares and serve it with milk.

  • Singhara ka atta( water chestnut flour)-1 cup
  • Sugar-1 cup
  • Ghee- 2 tbsp
  • Green cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
  • Almonds(chopped)- for garnish

Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan add singhara flour and roast until nice aroma.
Turn off the and transfer the roasted flour in a mixing bowl and let cool a bit.
Add sugar and and 2 cups of water, mix well with no lumps.
Pour this mixture on same put on medium heat and cook.
Stirring continuously and until the mixture the thickens or leave the sides.
Add cardamom powder and mix it well.
Turn off the heat and grease a steal plate with ghee.
Pour the mixture and spread evenly.Garnish with chopped almonds.
when cool completely,cut into squares and serve.
This sweet does not have a long shelf life,should be consumed within a day.
