Not all mangoes are ideal for Mango Barfi. Ripe mangoes with less fiber, like Alphonso or Kesari mangoes, are best for this Mango Barfi recipe because they'll result in a smoother and fudgier texture. Mangoes with high fiber content can make the barfi tough.

2. Can I use fresh mango puree or canned mango pulp for Mango Burfi?

Yes, both fresh mango puree and canned mango pulp work for mango burfi. Fresh puree might require extra cooking time to remove excess moisture.

3. Can I adjust the sweetness of the Mango Barfi?

Absolutely! You can adjust the sweetness of the Mango Barfi according to your taste. Start with a little less MILKMAID than recommended, then taste the mixture as it thickens.

4. How do I know when the Mango Barfi is ready?
