Monday, June 27, 2011

I wanted to do this post a couple of days ago, for my parents anniversary. But my laziness got the better of me. Anyways, better late than never :-) My mum & dad completed 30 years of wedded bliss & few days ago, so here's a sweet post for the sweet couple .. Mango Burfi it is !!

Mango Burfi

Before I head to the recipe, let me tell you that I acually suck at recipes which need to be cooked till a particular consistency :-) so this one was obviously made under my mom's supervision.

Makes 10-12 Burfis

You Will Need:
  • 250g Mango pulp
  • 150g powdered sugar
  • 250g Khoya
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 2-3 drops yellow food color
  • A little bit of saffron dissolved on warm milk
  • Some chopped dry fruits ( I didn't use any )

How To:
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, take mango pulp & half the quantity of sugar & cook on medium flame till it is reduced to half the quantity
  • In another pan, add grated khoya & cook until it turns pink in color. Add the remaining sugar & cooked mango pulp. Stir on low flame for about 10 mins until, it reaches a semi solid consistency & the whole mixture comes off the pan
  • Add yellow food color, chopped nuts, carsamom & saffron & give it a stir. Remove from fire.
  • Spread it on a greased deep dish. once cool, cut into squares & serve ..

Store in an air tight container .. can be stored outside for about 2 days. If you wish to preserve longer, store in the refrigerator. Enjoi !!
