As we all know Independence Day is around the corner and it’s the time to show some love and devotion to our National flag 🇮🇳. Our National flag consists of Saffron , White and Green which represents courage, peace and faith respectively.
Coincidently this time on this day we are celebrating “Raksha bandhan” too.
The brother-sister relationship is one of the most unique and valuable relationships in this world. There may be arguments and bitter fights between a brother and a sister, but then there is also that special bond which they can only feel.
So to celebrate both occasions on same day, made a “tricolour barfi”. A respect for tricolor & sweet for a brother on Raksha bandhan.
3 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup milkmaid
7-10 saffron strands
2 spoon Pistachio powder
1 spoon milk( add saffron strands to it)
Mix dessicated coconut powder & milkmaid properly
Divide the mixture into three partsIn one part add elaichi powder, mix & keep aside
In second portion add saffron milk to it.If you want you can use a pinch of orange color to saffron milk
