Almond burfi step-by-step recipe with photos.
Burfi is similar to fudge. Typically this burfi is made by blanching almonds, making a paste out of it, and cooking it. I usually make an easier version with almond meal and it turns out excellent. In fact, using almond meal instead of almonds gives it a non-sticky taste, similar to one we find in sweet shops in India. Absolutely delicious...
To make this mildly sweet burfi, I make a thin sugar syrup and add almond meal into it. I then cook it until the moisture evaporates and it comes together. I knead the whole mixture a little bit, roll it into a disc and cut it out. Done! Ready in minutes, almond burfi stays fresh for 3-4 days when stored in an airtight container.
