Blood Orange Barfi (Fudge)

Yesterday, the first time I found these beautiful blood oranges in the market (this season). It made my day not just because it looks insanely beautiful but they are sweet with a hint of raspberry flavour and a bit of floral. The inside flesh is dark pink, maroon, or even dark blood red. Blood oranges grow on citrus trees in warm climates. The fruit can be eaten as is, juiced, or used in baked goods, cocktails, salads, or other dishes that call for oranges.

Along with their lovely red colour, blood oranges tend to have a noticeable and delicious raspberry edge to their flavor. Now it is a season of blood orange and I wanted to make something which really showed off their lovely flavor and beautiful colour.

I love adding them to my famous Nagpur orange barfi instead of regular oranges. My version of this beautiful barfi is so delicious and flavoursome. There are many variations of barfi in Indian cuisine.

This delightful sweet blood orange barfi (fudge) with the goodness of almond and ghee makes this version a more luxurious desert for Holi. There is no need of adding artificial colour in this beautiful dessert. Blood oranges gives a beautiful shine and colour in it.

It melts in your mouth on every single bite. Nagpur is famous for the Oranges and also known as the "Orange City" for a major trade centre for oranges that cultivated in the region. Nagpur is also famous for orange sweets and barfi.

This beautiful sweet needs constant attention and some muscle power to do constantly stir and cook the mixture for the right consistency. This one is an easy and delightful dessert for your sweet calling carving.

Happy Holi to all of you 🙂 Stay healthy stay humble.
