Easy No Sugar Syrup Fiji Style Barfi



  • 215 ml full fat whole milk (about 1 cup)
  • 80 grams butter/ghee (5.5 tablespoons)
  • 175 grams sugar (3/4 cup)
  • 500 grams full fat milk powder (4 cups)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional) 
  • Sprinkles or chopped nuts for decorating

  1. Line your setting dish with parchment paper
  2. In a heavy bottom pan (non-stick preffered), on medium to medium low flame, heat the milk and butter/ghee until butter/ghee melts.
  3. Add sugar and stir well until completely dissolved. 
  4. Add milk powder and ground cardamom. Stir well and cook on low heat for 5-6 minutes. The mixture will be thick. Be sure to keep stirring. 
  5. Once the mixture starts to leave the side of the pan, add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Stir well and cook for another minute or until the mixture starts forming a ball. (refer to video for reference). 
  6. Transfer to your setting dish, smoothen the top, and add sprinkles/chopped nuts. 
  7. Cut to pieces and allow to cool to room temperature before removing from pan. 
  8. Serve at room temperature. This will keep in an airtight container for a week or in the fridge or 2-3 weeks.
