Welcome to Little Chef’s Apron! This recipe is an instant one. The real one requires a lot of time and ingredients .Today we’ll make something that all Indians would know, how delicious and mouthwatering it is. For those who don’t, continue reading and cook along!



1 cup milk powder

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup ghee or clarified butter

1 tsp cardamom powder

4 tbsp flavour ( powder almonds, pistachio,cashews etc)

3 tbsp granulated sugar

2 tbsp chopped nuts for garnishing.


. First, add ghee or clarified butter in a pan and switch on the heat . Let it me,t on low flame .

. Add the milk and give it a good mix. As the milk starts to boil slightly, add the milk powder in batches. Don’t add it all at once as then the mixture would be lumpy.

. When it’s all combined, add the sugar and flavouring.

Let this cook until it thickens up and started to separate the pan.

. It will start to hold its shape when you move it round .

. Line a tray( here I am using burfi tray) with butter paper and grease it which oil or ghee.

Transfer this slowly and with your spatula, make an even layer. At the start it would be a little sticky but as you keep doing shaping, it would form a even layer.

.Press the nuts in and cover it and leave it at room temperature for. 1 1/2 – 2 hours. It will harden into a creamy texture .

. Cut this into any size and shape you want and serve!
