The fights for Indian Independence were fought at many levels. Special Tirangi Barfi of Banaras played a small but revolutionizing role in Indian Independence. The original tirangi barfi of Banaras was called Rashtriya Barfi and was invented by Ram Bhandar founded around 1850 and located in the old city of Banaras in an area known as Thatheri Bazaar.
During the Freedom struggle, the government could censor newspapers and it wasn’t easy to plaster walls with posters. This is when Benaras created sweets that served as slogans. Tirangi Barfi on display substituted for the tricolor flag beloved of the freedom fighters.
This is a must-have delicacy from the old city of Banaras (Varanasi ). It is made from the best quality Cashews, Pista, Badam and Khoa (mawa)
