Daliya Barfi,…the Vegan way.

Hope you had a fabulous Diwali….๐Ÿ™‚

On the occasion of these auspicious five days of Deepawali festivities beginning with Dhanteras and culminating with Bhai Dooj , I am sharing this recipe of Dalia lentil barfi with you all , which you may try for your sweet celebrations. Hope you are really going to like it. This recipe is actually a result of an attempt for trying something that can compensate for the craving of the usual khoya or chhena in sweets which are a must have during any kind of celebrations in our home especially for the forthcoming Bhai Dooj, as my brother is really fond of khoya & milk sweets. However he is now on a no dairy diet, so satisfying his craving for sweets becomes a real challenge. But my aunt’s recipe for this Dalia-lentil barfi has all the components that can please him and I am sure he will just keep gorging on them….๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Check out the recipe ๐Ÿ‘‡
