Most of our sweets take a lot of time and energy. Very few are very fast to make and do not require much skill, yet taste very good. This is one such recipe. These burfis take hardly any time to make. They taste almost like Kaju(cashew) burfis.
I very rarely make sweets at home. No one in the family has any sweet tooth. So I haven’t made these in a long time. These used to be regulars at home. Last week I made a big batch of it for one of Shilpa’s friends. Most of it was finished by us and next day my son-in-law had request for one more batch.
1 cup maida (or all purpose flour)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tbl spn ghee
1/4 tea spn cardamom powder
6-7 saffron strands (optional)
Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan. Add maida and fry till a nice aroma comes out. Take it out on a clean plate.
Take milk and sugar in the pan and boil. Add saffron. Boil till the syrup starts to get to one string consistency. Add fried maida and keep mixing till it forms a ball. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
Apply some ghee to a plate and spread the mixture. When it is cooled a bit, cut into desired shapes.
