Santra Barfi.

I know many have tried and tasted Santra Barfi. Many of them have various perceptions about it, some of them like it some of them find it overrated. The people who live in metropolitan cities in India order a huge amount of Santra Barfi or take away with them while they visit Nagpur. However, very few know that authentic Santra burfi, with real pulp and milk mixture filled in the whole outer surface of orange, is available only in the canteen of MLA Hostel. The very much demanded Santra Barfi in Nagpur is sold by Haldiram’s and Shree Heera Sweets.
