Cashew Coconut Barfi - No- Cook & Easy-to-make.
💫Nutty, Creamy, Sweet and Fragrant.
💫These 🍬sweet little treats are usually shared during and around Divali🎉 celebrations. Barfi (milk cake) is usually made with milk powder, cream and sugar.
💫Here, I made a🌱 Vegan version that's quick to whip up with the same richness and similar🥛 'milky' taste as traditional Barfi minus the 🚫dairy and huge amounts of sugar- they're simply delightful.

Yield approx 12-16 pieces
🥄4 Cups Cashews (lightly roasted and unsalted)
🥥1/2 C Coconut Sugar or sub for Brown Sugar
🥄1 Tbl Cardamom Powder or 4 Cardomom Pods crushed. (Adjust to taste)
🥄1/2- 1tsp Grated Ginger (optional)
🥄Pinch of Salt
💫Using a high speed blender or food processor, blend all of the ingredients together until it forms a smooth but firm paste resembling a dough that can be shaped with your hands. (If you continue to blend the mixture at this stage it will turn into cashew butter).
💫Place the dough in a baking dish and press firmly with your hands or spatula to evenly spread the barfi, approx 1/2- 1 inch thick.
💫Top with toasted 🥥coconut and let sit for an hour or more before serving. You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
