Mawa Burfi | Khoya Barfi| Easy Holi Sweet


The festival of colors Holi is knocking at our doorstep signaling us to come out and get coloured by our family and friends. This marks the beginning of the spring and time for fun and frolic. So to energize ourselves to apply colours to others and also to save ourselves from getting caught and drenched with coloured water, presenting these khoya based sweets. Hope you like them and they form a part of the Holi festival at this year.

 They are very easy to make and takes less than 10-12 minutes to make ! We have purchased herbal colors /gulal and pichkari for Holi. What's your plan?

Ingredients:
1 cup Khoya /Mawa
1/2 cup Sugar (you can increase sugar according to your taste)
2 tbsp Milk
1 tbsp All purpose flour
1 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Cardamom powder
7-8 Almonds, chopped
7-8 Pistachios, chopped
Silver varakh (optional)

Method:

Heat ghee into a heavy pan on low flame. Put mawa into the pan and roast it on low flame till it melts (it takes 2-3 minutes). Remember if you want very smooth burfi you should add sugar, flour immediately or else let it turn pink in color for little grainy texture like I did. Add sugar and flour into the pan and stir continuously.


 After 2 minutes add milk and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle cardamom powder and cook till it thickens. Pour the mixture in the greased tray and spread it evenly into it. Or you can spread the mixture on a greased butter paper and roll gently to spread it. 

Garnish the mixture with chopped almonds and pistachios. Immediately decorate the top with silver varakh and spread chopped nuts over it and gently press it with a rolling pin, that way the nuts will stick on top.

 Let the burfis set on their own and once cool completely cut in desired shapes. Your homemade Mawa Burfis are ready ! You can keep these delicious burfis outside for 2-3 days not more than that or else keep in an air tight container in refrigerator. 

Notes:

  • If you want light almost whitish color of burfi don't fry till mawa turns pink. 
  • Cook sugar and mawa together so that it combines well otherwise if you add sugar later it will not mix thoroughly. 
  • Using silver varakh is optional. 
  • I wanted to control my intake of sweets during this festival season so made them little thin :-P you can made them thick like sweet shops.
