Quick Chocolate Barfi using condensed milk and a microwave


Chocolate Barfi is a favourite sweet of mine.  The barfi  is quick and easy to make and layering it with chocolate gives it a great taste.


  • 397 gm tin of condensed milk
  • 400 gms milk powder
  • 200 gms double cream
  • 3 tbls ghee (or melted salt free butter)
  • large pinch of saffron
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom (Elaichi)
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg (Jaifur)

For the topping:

2 bars of 150 gms cooking chocolate


1. Take a large microwave dish and mix the milk powder, condensed milk, double cream, ghee, saffron, nutmeg and ground cardamom.  Stir this mixture and cook on high (900 watts) for 1 minute.  Keep cooking and stirring the mixture at 1½ minute intervals for 6-7 minutes depending on your microwave.  The mixture should be smooth and creamy.




2.  Grease a tray and transfer this mixture in the tray.  Choose a tray that will give you a barfi thickness of just over half an inch.  Using the back of a greased spoon or small flat bowl, smoothen the mixture and allow to cool – preferably over night.


3. Once cool, melt the cooking chocolate by following the instructions on the packet.  I melted mine in the microwave until it was soft and runny enough to layer the barfi.   Allow this to cool.   Once cool, cut into squares or diamonds using a sharp knife ready to be eaten.  Any left over barfi can be stored in a biscuit tin for a fortnight.
