Burfi Recipes

Barfi or burfi is an Indian sweet. Plain barfi is made from condensed milk, cooked with sugar until it solidifies. Other varieties include besan barfi, made with besan (gram flour), and pista barfi, which is a milk barfi containing ground pistachio nuts.

Barfi is often flavoured with cashew, mango, pistachio and spices, and is sometimes served coated with a thin layer of edible silver leaf (varak). Visually, barfi sometimes resembles cheese, and may have a hint of cheese to it. For this reason, barfi is sometimes called “Indian cheese cake”. Barfi is popular all over India and is often a part of Indian festivals, especially Holi.

7 Cup Burfi

This is popular sweet in bengaluru and mysore, my native place in India. Everybody must be wondering when you saw the header l “7 Cup Sweet” as to why it is called so ?
Ans : In this sweet we use different ingredients on each cups and each ingredient is of 1 cup measurement or more. So it is called 7 cup. This is similar in taste like mysore pak. Most of the people make this instead of mysore pak becoz mysore pak is difficult to make compare to this. Some people make both.
