Control the Sweetness in Your Desserts
Since you’ll be making this dessert yourself, you can control the dessert sweetness to your liking. Market desserts are usually very sweet for me, which pushes health conscious consumers away from them. In this case, you can even opt to make two separate batches, one for kids and one for those who like less sugar.
What is Burfi?
The word Burfi or Barfi originated from Persian word ‘Barf’ or ‘Burf’, which means a slab of ice. Burfi, looks like a ice cube in shape, but is obviously made of ‘khoya’ i.e. milk solids. To make Khoya you boil milk till it becomes almost dough type consistency. Khoya is the main binder in most burfi recipes, with added ingredients to give it different flavors like mango burfi, cashew burfi, pistachio burfi, and gulkand burfi, etc. Making khoya at home is a time-consuming process, hence I opt to buy it from a store.
