Mango barfi using pedha recipe - how to make mango barfi - barfi recipe

Mango barfi using pedha recipe - Mango barfi  is my favorite sweet dish. There are so many varieties of barfis available in the sweet shop. But home made is always best as we combine the ingredients as per our choice to suit the taste. Usually I make barfis using khava or mawa. But I made this barfi using pedha for a special reason. Our family friend Milind and Bhavana's daughter Shreya scored  95% in 10th std. CBSE  Board. Congratulations Shreya!!  They came to visit us with a boxful of chitale bandhu's famous rajkot pedha. Thank you Milind and Bhavana for so much love and affection. We ate few pedhas and I used some of them to make this lovely soft and delicious mango barfi. You can add up some soaked cashew nut paste to the mango pulp to make it rich and creamy.
