This is one of the recipes of Mrs.Mano.I was thinking to ask her what is the difference between burfi and halwas.Any way I forgot to ask and googled for it . I was really surprised seeing the word "halwa" is an Arabic word refers to many sweets! Until this time I thought it is Indian.. :) Burfi / barfi contains milk and that may be the difference. Expert visitors please help..
If you are interested to see the list of Indian sweets, please don't leave this space without checking this page . It is really amazing!!
I used water soaked badams for preparing this.Peeling badam is a difficult task always, especially if it is soaked in cold water. The other method, that is adding boiled water to almonds and removing skin is very easy, but I think that swollen almonds would be easy to grind.
You can use almond powder too instead.
The amount I used was much more, so I altered all the measurements. So I should ask Mrs.Mano, the burfi in the picture is correct or not.. :)
Almonds- 1 cup [heaped]
Ghee- ¾ cup
Sugar- ¼ cup
Enough milk to grind the almonds
Grind the almonds with enough milk to a coarse paste.
In a kadai combine the ingredients.
Then heat the kadai and cook the mixture for 20 minutes stirring continuously all the time.
When the mixture leaves the sides and the ghee separates from the mixture, pour it in a greased plate.
When cooled, cut into desired shape.
Enjoy, it is very tasty!!
