7 CUP BURFI - Easy Festival Recipe

"Shared joy is double joy" - Proverb.
What can be a sweeter experience than sharing sweets on a festive occasion? The joy is double when you prepare it yourself and gift it to your near and dear. I love receiving edible gifts as much as I like giving them as these can be customized to one's preference and has a personal touch to it than the store bought ones. 

The recipe below is easy, hassle free and perfect for a snack share during Deepavali. Try this melt-in-mouth burfis and I am sure you are going to love it.  Resembles a traditional mysore-pauk. :)

  • 1 cup gram flour
  • 1 cup ghee or clarified butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup grated coconut ( fresh or desiccated)
  • 3 cups sugar ( I used 2 1/2 cups as the granule size was big)
  • Grease a tray or plate with ghee and set aside.
  • In a kadai, heat 2 tbsp of ghee and roast the gram flour until a nice aroma wafts. 
  • Simmer the flame.
  • Add the coconut, milk and sugar followed by ghee.
  • Keep stirring the mixture in low medium flame until there are no lumps and cook until the mixture thickens.
  • At one stage the mixture bubbles and thickens into a porous mass. You can notice this within 15 minutes of stirring.
  • Transfer the mixture to the greased tray/ plate and smoothen the top with a laddle or with a flat surface of a cup and leave it for a while.
  • When it is still warm, draw lines to make square or diamond shaped cakes and gently separate the pieces when it has cooled completely.
  • Enjoy!
