Cook's Hideout: 7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)

7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)

Blogging Marathon# 27: Week 2/ Day 4
Theme: Traditional Dishes
Dish: 7 Cup Sweet
Today's traditional dish is very simple and easy to make, but the end result almost makes you look like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours. These burfis just melt in your mouth and all the effort you put into it is mix it for may be 10-15 minutes.
7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)
The recipe is quite self explanatory - there are 7 cups of ingredients that are mixed until it thickens to burfi consistency. I have already posted the recipe for 7 cup sweet a while back, but this is one has slightly different ingredients. I used half cup each of cashews and almonds instead of 1 cup of coconut for a smoother burfis.
7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)
Use any cup size to measure the ingredients, only thing to remember is to use the same cup to measure ALL the ingredients. I used a 2/3 cup measure. One thing I might change the next time I make this is to use may be 2.5cups of sugar instead of whole 3 cups, it was a tad bit too sweet to my liking.

Ingredients:
Besan (Chickpea flour) - 1cup
Ghee - 1cup
Sugar - 3cups
Cashews - ½cup
Almonds - ½cup
Milk - 1cup
Ground Cardamom - ½tsp
7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)


Method:
  • Grind almonds and cashews to a fine powder.
  • Grease a plate with ghee and set it aside,
  • Combine besan, ghee, sugar, milk and the nuts mixture in a wide nonstick pan. Cook on medium flame, mixing frequently. Sugar will melt and the mixture will get liquidy initially and starts to thicken as it cooks.
  • Once the mixture starts to thicken, then stir continuously until the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. The whole process takes about 25-30 minutes depending on the quantity of ingredients you are making.
  • Add ground cardamom and mix well. 
  • Pour the mixture on the greased plate and spread into an even layer with the back of a wide spoon. Let cool before cutting into diamonds or squares.
These store well in an airtight container for up to 7-10 days.

    1. Harini, yes this has quite a bit of sugar. But the 3 cups can be any size cup that is used to measure the ingredients. I used a 2/3 cup measure, so I used a total of 2 cups sugar and I got a about 35 - 40 burfis out of which I gave away more than half.

  11. Very yummy ones. I reduce the sugar and ghee quantities usually. And coconut goes in place of nuts.

    1. Book, I use my Indian blender and it works the best. A spice grinder would probably be your best bet.
