    Maida Burfi - A Festive Sweet




    Maida burfi, prepared with all purpose flour, is a very tasty and easy to make festive sweet that 
    requires very few ingredients and does not require much time to prepare it. Has a taste similar to soan papdi and looks so delectable too. Try it once and you will definitely love its texture and flavor. The cardamom flavor blends well with the flour and gives you an amazing flavor. I have used milk powder here which adds an extra scrumptious taste to the sweet.  These burfis perfectly suits your festive mood and can also  be a great sweet to fill your gift boxes. Now lets see how to make this delectable sweet. 


    INGREDIENTS


    Makes 20-22 burfis 
    Total Preparation Time - 20 minutes 
    1. Maida / All purpose flour - 1 cup (100 grams)
    2. Milk powder - ¾ cup (75 grams)
    3. Sugar - 1½ cup (150 grams) 
    4. Cardamom pods - 6 (or) Cardamom powder - 1/4 spoon 
    5. Chopped cashews - 3 spoons (Optional)
    6. Saffron strands -Few (Optional)
    7. Ghee / Clarified butter - 15 spoons 
    8. Food color - 2 pinches (I used orange red color) 

    PREPARATION METHOD

    • Place a pan on flame and add 5 spoons of ghee to it, then add maida (all purpose flour) and roast on low flame until you get a nice aroma. 
    • Then remove from flame and add the milk powder (I used Amulya dairy whitener) mix well and set aside. 
    • Now take a pan and add sugar, cardamom pods or cardamom powder and 1½ cups of water (150 ml or until the sugar gets immersed well) and place on flame. 
    • Stir well until the syrup turns sticky and you get a single string consistency. (To check a single string consistency take a ladle of the sugar syrup and pour it in the pan slowly to check whether a well flowing string is formed while the sugar syrup is poured down) 
    • Now add the prepared maida and milk powder mixture slowly and keep stirring so that  no lumps are formed. 
    • The mixture will immediately thicken, now add some ghee and keep stirring. 
    • Add the remaining ghee and stir well until it all forms a single mass. 
    • Add any edible food color you want and mix well until the color spreads evenly. Stir well for another 2 minutes. (by this time you must be able to make non-sticky balls out of it, if not pour some more ghee and keep stirring well until you can make a nice and smooth non-sticky ball)
    • Remove from flame and spread it (will be like chapati dough) into a greased pan.
    • Sprinkle some chopped nuts, saffron strands and press well using a flat surface greased with ghee. Set aside. 
    • When it cools down cut into desired shapes using a any cookie cutter or knife and serve!



    TIP 1: If you are not sure about the sugar syrup consistency, just check whether the sugar syrup has got sticky, then add the flour. 

    TIP 2: If you do not wish to use food color you can avoid it but instead of adding cashew nuts you can add pistachio nuts which will give a nice contrasting color. 

    TIP 3: Slightly dry roast the cashew nuts and then chop it to give a crisper taste. 

    TIP 4: You can also grease a flat surface with ghee then place the dough (after it cools down well) on it and spread well using a rolling pin (the ones you use for making chapatis) then sprinkle some chopped nuts and press well again. Using a cookie cutter chop into desired shapes then. This will be easier than the former method. Whatever utensils you use grease it well with ghee so that the dough does not stick to them.

    TIP 5: The texture will change once it has cooled down well. Initially it will be very soft bu later on it will get the perfect burfi texture. 

    TIP 6: You can also separate the prepared dough into two portions add two different food colors and prepare colorful burfis also.

      1. Hi dear..
        No you can't use milk, because you won't get the consitency perfectly. Milk powder only suits this recipe dear. You can replace it with sooji (rava) try that version dear. In such case slightly roast a cup of rava and use it for preparing burfis :)
