Chocolate Barfi ~ To celebrate!!

I’ve never won a lucky draw before,even in school.
I religiously fill up forms in malls/shops hoping that I’ll win a gift hamper or a holiday package but luck never came knocking at my door.
I’ve commented umpteen times on blogs which host giveaways but always have to satisfy myself with the two words – next time!!

But not this time..I’ve won I’ve won I’ve won!!!

Yes,I’ve won a Waffle maker at Meet my Kitchen things,a giveaway hosted by Nags.I was curious when she posted the link to my Fb wall but never in my dreams thought that I must have won it!! I don’t live in US hence have to hunt down friends’ addresses for shipping and heck,I have no clue when it is gonna reach me and what I am going to do with it..but I’ve WON IT!! [Does it show that I’ve gone crazy??]

On such a happy occasion[at least for me;-)] I feel I should share a sweet with you guys.It was sometime back that I chanced upon Hetal and Anuja’s Show me the Curry site.I am hooked to it and watch their videos over and over again.I’ve tried making Peda from the site and this is a recipe I chose because I wanted to finish off some milk powder which was nearing its expiry date!! I halved the recipe and got around 18 pieces of Barfi.

Chocolate Barfi
Recipe from
Show me the Curry


Milk Powder – 2 ½ cups
Powdered sugar – ¾ cup
Whipping cream – 200 ml[I used a pack of Amul Fresh Cream]
Chocolate – ¼ cup,chopped
Cocoa powder – 1 tsp


In a deep microwave safe bowl,mix the milk powder and sugar well.
Add the cream and stir till it forms a smooth paste.
Microwave for 3-4 minutes in 1 minute intervals till it starts fluffing and folding in.[mine got done in 4 minutes,depends on each microwave]
Grease a plate and pour half of the mix into it and flatten it using a spatula.
Wait for a while to let it set a bit.
Meanwhile,mix in the chocolate and cocoa powder to the other half of the mix and mix well till the chocolate melts and the whole thing becomes a smooth paste.
Pour it on top of the mix and flatten well.
Let it set for 3-4 hours in the refrigerator.
Cut into desired shapes and serve.
