Keto Almond Barfi

An Indian delicacy Keto Style

Almond Barfi or Burfi is traditionally made of almonds, sugar, ghee and cardamom powder. Here we have replaced sugar with a Keto approved sweetener, Swerve (which is 0 carbs), and the outcome is just as finger licking good like the original version. This mouth watering dish can be served as a dessert or snack and can be eaten guilt free.

Pieces: Makes 15 pieces

Prep Time: 3 mins Cook Time: 10 mins


  1. Almond Flour - 1 cup

  2. Swerve/Sweetener of Choice - 1/2 cup

  3. Water- 1/4 cup

  4. Ghee- 1 tbsp and extra for greasing the pan

  5. Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp

  6. Saffron - Few Strands

Method of preparation

  1. In a saucepan, add the sweetener and water and bring it to a boil. Simmer and let it boil for 3 mins. Note that you will not be able to do the 'one thread consistency' test with swerve.

  2. Add the almond flour,cardamom powder and saffron and keep stirring for 3-4 mins till the mixture becomes a dough like consistency and leaves the sides of the sauce pan.

  3. Add the ghee and mix well again

  4. Smear your hands with water and test by rolling a small pinch of the mixture in between your fingers. You should be able to form a non sticky ball. This is the correct consistency.

  5. Remove the dough from the saucepan and knead it for 1 min using a spoon.

  6. While it is still warm, roll the dough into thin layer and cut to make pieces.


  • Kneading the dough makes it smooth

  • Put your dough between parchment paper and roll it using a rolling pin.
