Nariyali ki Barfi|Kobbari Vadi ~Diwali Special
Nariyali ki barfi, khobbari Vadi, narlya cha vadya and coconut fudge the same name for a simple sweet that I make every year for Diwali in my place.
Easy to make with ingredients in your pantry khobbari vadi was something Amma made regularly. All you need is freshly grated coconut, sugar and cream.You can add ingredients like chocolate, carrots, beetroots, boiled potato, mangoes, raisins, cashew nuts, almonds.
With the Festival of lights, Deepawali round the corner I think it is high time I share how I make this simple yet tasty barfi.
These coconut fudge are available in some form or other around the subcontinent so I would rather not peg it down as a particular state cuisine.
Generally, burfi, I am not talking about the movie here but the sweet is milk confectionery made from condensed milk also called khoya, mawa, khava. Sugar and khava are cooked until it solidifies. A barfee as it is also known is made from things as diverse as besan, kaju, pistachios. Though the most popular essence is elichi/cardamom we do use saffron, rose water and in some cases kherwa. Nuts used can be cashew nuts, almonds, pistachios.
Cut your barfee in squares, diamonds or circles.
When do you eat barfi?? There is no such thing as time eat it all year round but especially now during the holiday seasons, wedding ceremonies, and the religious festivals.

The other Diwali dishes at my place are
- Chirotti ~Indian State Karnataka,
- Rasatle Fov or Pohe In Coconut Milk (Savoury)~ Indian State Goa,
- Ammade Che Karam a Goan Delicacy,
- C for Chana-Cho Ros Goan Style Peas Bhaji,
- Churma, a Goan Delicacy,
- Moong Daal And Black Pepper Sev,
- Milkmaid Chocolate Balls,
- Doodhi Halwa or Bottle Gourd Halwa,
- Chivda, Spicy Shankar Pali
The number of pieces you will get will depend on the thickness of your barfi and the size you cut them in. I got about 12 pieces.
Also, I keep my coconut, sugar and milk and cream mixture aside for sometime this is an optional step. I find that it reduces my cooking time.
