Vanilla Ice Cream Burfi | Home made Ice Cream Barfi | Perfect Ice cream Burfi Recipe with Tips


The Vanilla Ice Cream Barfi recipe is a perfect example to show that we can make sweets the way they are made in sweet shops by following just a few tips.

The name of the recipe may make it sound like some new, exotic recipe, but it is a pretty simple one. This Ice Cream Barfi melts like Ice Cream with a great Vanilla flavor.

This Barfi does not taste like Vanilla Ice Cream but is as soft and melting as Ice Cream. The recipe is close to Milk Mysore Pak but tastes nothing like it.

This simple Barfi should be as white as possible and should melt in your mouth. But to get that all right, you must follow these tips.

Some tips for a perfect Barfi:

  1. The whiter the Barfi, the greater the proof that the recipe was execute perfectly. And the softer it is, there is the proof that the syrup was perfect in consistency. For this Ice Cream Barfi, both are equally important.

  2. If the Syrup is too thick, the Barfi becomes hard and loses its softness. Though it may taste ok, it is not like a Barfi at all.

How to prevent the Barfi from changing colour?:

  1. It is better to use a non-stick pan. And also keep stirring from all sides after the milk powder paste is added to the pan and it is cooked on a low flame. Only then the Barfi will not change colour.

  2. If the Barfi is stirred on a high flame, it sticks to the bottom and changes colour. It should be stirred on a low flame until it thickens.

  3. If you take a small lump of the Barfi and roll it, it should be rolled into a ball. That indicates the Barfi is ready. Then switch off the stove and stir it for another two minutes and pour it in the mould. Then it won’t change colour.

Vanilla Sugar:

  1. Vanilla Sugar is something that prevents the Ice Cream Barfi from changing colour. This Vanilla Sugar is easily available in supermarkets. If you don’t have it, then add Vanilla essence. But then the Barfi will change colour a little bit.

Something about the Ice Cream Barfi:

  1. Ice Cream Barfi has a little more sweetness. If you don’t like it, reduce the sweetness. But the Barfi becomes hard if you decrease the Ghee.
