Recipe Source :- Own
Yields – 6 Pieces
Maida – 1 Cup + 2 Tbsp
Sugar – 3/4th Cup
Water – 1/3 Cup (after sugar melts just it takes 3-4 in medium flame to come to one string consistency)
Ghee – 1/4 Cup (I used 3 and 1/2 Tbsp)
For Glaze or Chocolate Coating
1/3 Cup –> Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips or Any good quanlity chocolate (I use chocolate chips)
- Sieve the flour and grease a plate or pan with ghee, keep aside.
- In a wide pan add 1/4 cup ghee and when it is hot add the flour (Pic 1).
- Roast the flour in medium flour for 4-5 minutes or till nice aroma attains (Pic 2).
- By that time the flour may have lumps try to break while frying and if still exists nothing to worry.
- Remove the roasted flour to a plate and in the same pan add 1/3rd cup water and sugar.
- When sugar melts completely, keep stirring in medium for another 3-4 minutes or one string consistency is attained (Pic 3).
- Here the sugar consistency is important for the perfect texture of burfi.
- Reduce the flame and add roasted flour(Pic 4), keep stirring in low flame for few more minutes and make lump free (Pic 5).
- At one stage all rolls together and look like shown in picture (Pic 5).
- Pour the mixture in to already greased pan, tap well to make even all around (Pic 6).
- It dries out soon you can grease the back of spoon with ghee and level the top.
- The burfi sets in 10 minutes of time.
- You can enjoy this plain maida burfi as it is.
- You decorate the burfis with some chocolate glaze (melted chocolate) and pour over it.
- When decided to decorate with chocolate coating then allow the maida burfi to set for at least 10 minutes.
- In a bowl take the chocolate chips (Pic 7), Microwave for 30 seconds or use double broiler (melt in a separate pan over boiling water) and melt the chocolate and once all melt completely (Pic 8) pour it over the already prepared maida burfi (Pic 9).
- Tap it well so that the top evens (Pic 10).
- Allow at least 1 hour for the chocolate to set (Pic 11), time depends on what type of chocolate you use.
- Also when the temperature is hot in your place it takes time to set better refrigerate to set quick.
- If the choc is not stick to your fingers when you touch then it’s all set.
- Use Jam spreader or knife and cut the burfi in to pieces (Pic 12).
- If you feel hard to cut then dip the knife or slicer in hot water and then cut it (i did so).
- Once you cut in to pieces using warm kinfe then leave the pieces for another 10-15 minutes to set, its optional so that the glaze won’t stick in your hands.
- If you feel the melted chocolate is very thick you can add 1/2 tbsp shortening or coconut oil mix with melted chocolate and then pour it over burfi.
- You can refrigerate for quick chocolate setting
