CARROT BURFI RECIPE | EASY DIWALI SWEETS RECIPE

carrot-burfi
After the very successful attempt of trying out the BADAM BURFI I wanted to try out the carrot burfi. To add more happiness, this carrot burfi turned out fantastically well and it took 15 minutes for me to finish making Burfi. It tasted awesome and my daughter Varsha who is a perfect taste maker, raised her thumbs on the very first bite.  If you are new for making sweets for the first time, this burfi is definitely an easy sweet to try out for this Diwali. So lets move on to the recipe of carrot burfi – Easy  Diwali Sweet. Recipe updated with Video now

  • The night light makes the color to look different. the burfis came out in the colour which you see in the main picture.
Carrot-burfi            Notes:
  • If by any chance you feel the burfis are very soft and can not cut, just put this again in the pan and stir for 3-5 minutes in low flame.
  • Always keep the flame in low. do not make it burnt

    1. No need to boil the carrots, just grind with milk and add to the besan mixture and start stirring. No raw smell of carrots will come as it is cooked while stirring.

  18. Hi jeyasri,
    I tried your carrot burfi yesterday. The taste was awesome . I tried the exact recipe you mentioned but instead of burfi it became halwa. Could you tell what went wrong?

    1. Arthy, you could have taken it few minutes before from the kadai. Just take it when it starts leaving the pan and comes into a whole mass

  20. hai jey .I tried ur carrot burfi. taste is good but I cannot make it into pieces. after taking it from kadaai how long it takes for warming? when I can make it into pieces?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you are not able to make pieces, it means it still needs cooking for few more minutes in the kadai. After spreading it , in 15 to 20 minutes you can put pieces

  22. Can i use butter instead of ghee?

    ReplyDelete
  23. it came well.but it was in semi solid,not in solid shape,wt may be the pblm

    ReplyDelete
  24. Either u would have added more milk than i mentioned or would have taken before few minutes from the pan. If u stir for some more time you can make burfis

  25. How long can he burfi last? Can it be kept in the fridge?

  26. Hi.. Tried ur recipe.. I cud cut into pieces.. But it is soft but very tasty.. Does ths sweet meant to be soft

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi - the burfis came out very soft like some of the others have mentioned here. I did keep the mixture on the stove for as long as possible since the texture did not look like it will come into solid burfis. Does it need more sugar?
    The soft burfis were very delicious and addictive. It was a big hit!
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Even i don't know why it is coming out soft. Adding more sugar will spoil the taste and will be sugary. can try by adding little more besan

    1. Generally we dont get it as we are cooking it for a long time. May be depends on the besan too. Next time may be u roast the besan separately for few minutes and then add
