7 Cup Burfi


 

7 cup burfi is essentially made with 7 cups of ingredients and is a simpler version of Mysore pak. This burfi is easy to make and is perfect for festivals and celebrations. The 7 cups of ingredients that go into making these delicious burfis are 1 cup each of gram flour (besan), coconut, milk, ghee and 3 cups of sugar. But i find the burfis too sweet with 3 cups of sugar, hence I add 1 ¾ cup of sugar. This makes the sweetness of the burfi just right for our liking. You may increase the sugar if you like a sweeter burfi.

This simple recipe is perfect for festivals like Diwali or Ganesha Chaturthi. Do try the 7 cup burfi during your next celebration and wow your guests.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

Gram flour (besan) – 1 cup
Coconut – 1 cup, freshly grated
Ghee – 1 cup
Milk – 1 cup
Sugar – 1 ¾ cups (the traditional recipe calls for 3 cups, but I think they make the burfi too sweet)
Cardamom powder – 1 tsp

Method:

  1. Grease a pan or tray with some ghee and line it with a parchment paper. Set aside
  2. Heat a non stick pan and add besan. Dry roast for a few minutes until it turns aromatic
  3. Add coconut and roast for another 2-3 minutes
  4. Add sugar and milk. Mix well and bring it to boil
  5. Once it starts boiling add half cup ghee. Keep stirring continuously
  6. Once all the ghee is absorbed, add the remaining ghee
  7. Keep stirring until the whole mixture comes together and starts leaving the sides of the pan
  8. Pour the mixture on the greased tray and level it
  9. Let it cool slightly. Cut into desired shape while the burfi is still warm
  10. Serve or store in an air tight container in the refrigerator
