Breadcrumbs Burfi with a Twist.....



                                       
Yesterday I found that my packet of breadcrumb is almost nearing expiry date. Hence I decided to use most of it and prepare a slightly different kind of Burfi ( Indian Sweet ). However, after tasting my preparation I can safely tell that it turned out to be nice and I'm pretty sure all of you would like it. 
                                                             




Serves: Depends on the shape that you want to give. Preparation time: 30 minutes


Ingredients:
1 cup Bread crumbs
1 cup Coconut (grated)
1/2 Semolina
2 tbsp Ghee
Pinch of Cardamom powder
1 tbsp Milk
1/2 cup Sugar (or according to your taste)
Handful Raisins, Cashews, Almonds


Method:
Grate only the white portion of coconut and keep it aside. Heat ghee in a non-stick pan and fry the raisins, almonds and cashews together and keep it aside. In the same pan, fry the semolina till light brown (to erase the raw smell of semolina and will give a nice colour). Now add grated coconut, bread crumbs, cardamom powder in the pan along with semolina. Cook this mixture on medium flame until the sugar dissolves completely. Add milk in the pan and stir it well. Shift this mixture in to a greased plate and spread it evenly. Level it using a flat spatula and let it cool down. Slice the burfis in your desired shape by greasing the knife. Serve these delicious burfis to your guests. You may store it in an air tight container, if only you could resist...:-)
