There is nothing quite like Indian mithais to satiate our sweet cravings. From the spongy rosogullas to the syrupy jalebis and the flaky and crisp balushahi – the list of our much-loved sweets is never-ending! Besides, none of our festivals or special occasions seems complete without indulging in sweet dishes. Crumbly and gooey barfis top the list when talking about festive sweets. Besan barfi, moong dal barfi, kaju barfi, and even badam barfi – everyone’s got a favourite when it comes to these sweets. But we often eliminate the idea of making these delicacies at home due to the extensive recipe that is both tedious and time-taking. But not anymore! We bring you an easy mithai recipe that needs just 2 ingredients for preparation. It’s a banana halwa barfi that needs banana and ghee. That’s it.

What entices us most is the fact that the sweet can be made with merely 2 major ingredients – banana and ghee. You may add chopped cashew nuts and some cardamom powder to enhance the flavors too.
