Varanasis Quit India Movement Tiranga Barfi Receives The GI Tag
痴补谤补苍补蝉颈’蝉 tiranga barfi finally made it to the GI club on April 16, 2024. Boasting around 69 products in this prestigious category, Uttar Pradesh has topped the leaderboard of GI-tagged (Geographical Indications) goods production. Originally made from the best quality cashews (for white layer), pistachios (for green layer), almonds (for saffron colour) and mawa, this legendary sweet is a must-have delicacy in the land of Kashi.
Originating in the 1850’s, tiranga barfi was invented by Shri Raghunath Das Gupta, who owned a small sweet shop called Ram Bhandar located in the Thatheri Bazaar area of Varanasi. Though the contribution was small, this mithai played a significant role in adding life to the Indian independence movement.

During the freedom struggle, when the Britishers had censored newspapers, this sweet initially known as Rashtriya barfi was created and served as slogans. It displayed the three colours of tricolour flag making the barfi a beloved dessert of the freedom fighters. Even today on Independence and Republic Day, tiranga barfi is distributed in schools and other institutions in many parts of the country.
However, along with this tri-colour treat other sweets named after the famous freedom fighters were invented in the Ram Bhandar shop such Jawahar Laddoo, Moti Pak, Madan Mohan, Gandhi Gaurav to support the freedom movement. It is said that through word of mouth these sweets along with tiranga barfi became very popular across the city and they even started to serve them in the kitchens of the local British government officers.
Today the original recipe has been improvised a little as it was time-consuming, and items used are also expensive but the emotion and its connection to the sacrifice of the freedom fighters is still alive. Currently, the main ingredients of this sweet are mawa and edible food colours for saffron and green. So, whenever you visit Varanasi, do not forget to try the tiranga barfi.
