This is a simple dessert, one can prepare very quickly when there is a need. The number of items required is just 4. More than a burfi it is like pudding.
This was a frequent sweet that my mother used to prepare for us in my childhood. She used to do it in maida, whereas I prefer ‘whole wheat flour’ over maida. Kids with sweet tooth usually love this. It can be a good evening food for toddler (with reduced sugar amount).
Time: 20 mins max
Wheat flour/ Maida (All purpose flour) – 1 cup
Sugar – 1 cup (Adjust as per taste)
Milk - 1 cup (full cream)
Ghee – ¼ - ½ cup
Method:Heat a thick bottomed pan. Add Ghee, wheat flour (Maida) and fry stirring continuously. Do it in medium flame in order to avoid burning. Color of the flour should turn to brownish and you will get nice aroma when done. It will take 8-10mins. Pour milk and stir again so that there are no lumps formed. Full cream milk will give you better tasting sweet (If already boiled, do not remove the cream). When the mixture solidifies (water is absorbed completely), add sugar and sauté until the burfi leaves the bottom of pan. Switch of the stove. Transfer to a container and serve hot. Consume within two days, or refrigerate.
