Sonth Dhaniya Ki Barfi


1/2 cup Coriander powder
1/2 cup Ginger powder
1/2 cup Grated Coconut
1/2 cup Crushed Almond
50 gm Edible Gum (Gond)
1 cup Grated Jaggery
2/3 cup Ghee (clarified Butter) + 3tbsp Ghee


Heat 3 tbsp ghee in a pan and fry the edible gum (Gond) in 2 batches as the Gond tends to swell and it’ll not be properly fried if done altogether. Fry the crystals till they become golden brown. In a bowl, mix coriander powder, ginger powder, grated coconut, crushed almond and edible gum puffs.

Heat remaining ghee in another pan and add jaggery into it. On a low flame, cook jaggery until it melts, mixes well with ghee and bubbling starts. Add coriander powder-ginger powder mixture into it and mix well. Put off the gas and immediately pour the hot mixture in a plate/thali greased with ghee. Spread and press evenly with the base of a small bowl. Before it cools down, cut it into square shaped pieces. Cool for an hour and once it is set, gently remove pieces for serving.
