Milk powder burfi is the easiest one to prepare. It can also be called as milk fudge or instant burfi recipe, as it is made with very few ingredients and the whole process gets finished in 15 minutes.
- 2.5 Cups Milk Powder
- 1/4 Cup Ghee Link for ghee
- 3/4 Cup Boiled Milk
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Cardamom Optional
- Few Strands Saffron For Garnishing
- 1 tbsp Chopped Nuts Optional
Measure and keep all the ingredients ready.
In a pan, pour ghee and heat a little. Then pour the boiled milk.
Do everything in very low flame, else it gets burnt at the bottom. Add milk powder slowly and in a sprinkled way. Then add sugar and stir continuously till it dissolves.
Continue stirring in low flame and ensure there is no lumps. First it turns goey and after 2 minutes the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and it forms as a mass.
Line a tray / plate with butter paper and grease it with little ghee all around. Then transfer the mixture to the tray and level it with a ladle or spoon.
If preferred, sprinkle some nuts, saffron or decorate with silver foil or you can have it plain also. Keep undisturbed for an hour. Then place the tray on a plate and gently tap to remove. Now slowly peel the butter paper.
1. Use good quality milk powder, as it is the main ingredient used here.
2. Adjust sugar level as per sweetness preferred for this milk powder burfi recipe.
3. To make the work easier, use powdered sugar, as we need not wait for the sugar to dissolve.
4. After the addition of milk powder, stir continuously and ensure there are no lumps.
5. Always do the whole process in low flame, otherwise, it gets burnt at the bottom. Then it smells bad and the colour also changes.
6. Don’t cook after it forms as a mass, else the burfi turns chewy.
7. For more flavour, 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder can be used for this instant burfi recipe.
8. Little nuts, saffron can be sprinkled over the burfi. It can be decorated with silver foil or had plain also.
9. This burfi stays good for 5 days when kept outside and 2 weeks under refrigeration.
