Some desserts are so easy to make that you just gave to make them often. This dessert or a snack consists just a few ingredients, but it brings so much flavor. Everything comes from the magic power of spices. They can make from every simple ingredient a real sensation.
Barfi is typical Indian snack and like the most Indian dishes it’s full of flavor. Normally it’s made with cardamom, but I couldn’t resist to add a little bit more magic. In my opinion, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg work together perfectly and they creat a real celebration of Indian flavors.
This dessert could come a little bit strong for some people. The flavors are indeed very bold. If you want something a little bit subtle, just increase the amount of ricotta.
- 500 g ricotta cheese
- 50 g sugar
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 50 g (flaked) almonds
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C/375 degrees F.
Mix ricotta and sugar in a bowl. Add the seasonings. Mix until smooth.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 min. Take the form from the oven. Sprinkle the almonds on top. Return in the oven for 5 to 10 more minutes. Let it cool completely before you cut it. Enjoy!
