Preethi, I am a huge fan of coconut barfi. Your paneer almond coconut barfi is super tempting. For this Diwali season have already made my coconut barfi. Next time, which will be probably around Christmas, I am surely trying out your unique recipe or adding paneer. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Diwali.
I am so glad you liked it. Thank you. Wish you and your family a very Happy Diwali too!!
An interesting twist to traditional coconut burfi with paneer and almond. Looks so delicious and too tempting. Bookmarking to try it out soon.
Paneer almond coconut barfi sounds amazing. I can imagine the divine taste. Always used khoya in coconut barfi. But next time I will make barfi following your recipe.
Love the flavor profile of this sweet! This will be gone in a flash in our home.
Preethi, I loved the addition of paneer and almond powder to your coconut barfi. Sometimes, one does not have khoya, so paneer is a wonderful replacement. With the aroma of saffron these must have tasted heavenly. I am adding these to my bucket list.
The paneer almond barfi with coconut looks so flavourful. I like the colour – so perfect. I love sweets made with coconut. Adding paneer instead of khoya is a nice and healthy option
