Barfi doesn’t get as much attention as other Indian desserts like kulfi and jalebi (thanks, Lion) but it’s the one thing you’re sure to find at any Indian restaurant. Little squares of hardened condensed milk come sprinkled with metallic leaf called vark. Barfi comes plain or flavoured with almonds, pistachios, peanuts, coconut and rose water. The plain barfi at Jaipur Sweets is cheaper than most places ($1pp for plain barfi, $2pp for other flavours). We’re told the most popular of their barfi selection is the pista (pistachio) and if you’re new to the crumbly Indian snack, be aware that it can be very fragrant with Indian spices like cardamom, so it’s not for vanilla palates.
