CHOCOLATE BURFI | CHOCOLATE FUDGE |DIWALI SWEET RECIPE

Chocolate-burfi 
Chocolate Burfi or Chocolate fudge is a simple and easy to make sweet and trust me this will really be a treat for kids . I learnt this from my husband’s mami , and i am sending this to my kids who have diwali celebrations at school tomorrow. Try out this simple diwali sweet recipe.

Preparation time: 5 minutes + resting time 1 hour | Cooking time: 10 minutes| Yields: 10 to 12 burfis

INGREDIENTS:
MILK POWDER 1 CUP
SUGAR 3/4 CUP minus 2 TBLSP
COCOA POWDER 2 TSP
CASHEW NUTS(CHOPPED) 2 TBLSP
ALMONDS (CHOPPED) 2 TBLSP
DESICCATED COCONUT 1/2 TSP(OPTIONAL)
BUTTER 1 TBLSP

Chocolate-fudge
The important thing in getting the burfi perfect is the one string consistency.
  • Take sugar in a saucepan and just add little water to cover the sugar.
  • Boil this in a medium flame.
  • When the sugar gets completely dissolved and it reaches one string consistency (check between your thumb and index finger to check one string consistency) switch off the flame. Check this detailed post on sugar syrup consistency
  • Just add the milk powder and cocoa powder mixture,butter to this and stir well.

sugar -syrup  Add-cocoa - milkpowder 
  • The consistency will be of a thick idli batter.
Mix-cocoa -milkpowder

  • In a butter greased plate transfer this mixture and flatten this.
spread
  • Sprinkle the nuts and desiccated coconuts to this evenly.
burfi
  • When it is cool( may be in ten minutes) cut it into desired shapes and enjoy the burfi.

This yielded 12-14 pieces of the size shown in the picture.
  • I made this in two batches.
  • So in the first batch i chopped the nuts with knife but during the second time i lost my patience and just put the nuts in the mixer and the difference you can see in the pictures.
  • While making  the second batch my husband suggested me to mix a portion of nuts in the batter(sugar syrup+milk powder+cocoa powder) and I spread a portion of nuts in the greased plate and garnished few on the top.
  • I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence to the second batch of the burfi and it tasted awesome.
  • Do not cook in flame after adding the cocoa powder, will make the burfi bitter.
  • Do not add more water to the sugar while making the syrup, this will make the burfi watery and cannot be made into pieces.
Wish all my readers, friends and well     wishers a very
HAPPY AND SAFE DIWALI.

    1. Hi
      1 cup of rice yields 1 and 1/4 cup of rice flour, so adjust the proportion according to this.

  38. Any milk powder will use or preferably is there any.

  39. Hi - what is one string consistency?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Arundati, after the sugar dissolves and starts boiling, if you touch the syrup and rub between your index finger and thumb, you could see a single thread formation. At that stage u need to switch it off. If it exceeds you will get 2 string formation. It is 2 string consistency

      Delete
  40. should i switch off the flame while mixing the milk powder, cocoa powder and butter with the sugar syrup

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi dear i tried this yesterday.but didnt comeout well.after getting one string consistency i just switched it off and added other ingredients.but it turned out as a chappathi dough.so i have to add little hot water to make it bit flowing consistency.but aft pouring and cooling it didnt set at all.i just roll it like balls.it tasted good.if u tell me what went wrong i want to try and get it perfectly.hope u ll help.

  42. Hi harini,
    Thanksfor trying out. From your message i could able to make out that the mistake must be the water you have added after must be more. The burfi will set very quickly and i feel that even in the first time itself you would have stirred it for long time after adding the milk and cocoa powder.
    You speed up the process after adding the powder and also let the measurements be perfect

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank u.i ll try once again and let u know.but the taste was just like chocalate.only shape is laddu and not burfi.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi Jeyashri..could you please let us know the exact quantity of water to add? I think the trick lies in getting that right. Harini's problem also seems to be because of the quantity of water.

    1. Deepa in general for sugar syrup we add very little water only. For this recipe 3 tblsp of water is enough.

      Delete
    2. I tried this burfi and after adding coco and milk powder mixture in dissolved sugar it formed lumps and did not come like smooth consistency like yours..what should I do for this next time?

      Delete
    3. Sometimes it may be the nature of the milkpowder. Try sieving the milk powder before you add it to the sugar syrup
