White Chocolate Mawa Barfi

This post is all about confessions. Not every new recipe one tries is a flying success, some taste totally different from what one expected and some which taste great do not photograph very well. This serendipity of a recipe was one of the former. I was trying to create an apparently easy recipe of a white chocolate bark and something went seriously wrong (please do not ask me what, I have no clue), somewhere towards the last few minutes it started to turn fudgy and definitely not what would set into a bark. So, what was I supposed to do? Bin the chocolate? Of course not! Since the Supremacy wanted fudge I decided to make a fudge. I incidentally had some fresh khoya at hand so I added that to the fudgy mass, gave it a nice mix, cooled it,topped it with nuts, refrigerated and we had a delicious white chocolate mawa barfi ready! I must admit it was a quintessential Indian dessert-sweet! So, unless you have a massive sweet tooth, do not attempt it 😉 Yes, only on my blog you will get recommendations on what not to make..haha! Just kidding! Go ahead, try it but be careful not to over-indulge, it truly is addictive 🙂
