  • The burfis will be bit chewy when u taste it immediately. After refrigeration of 2 hours, they become firm and it stayed well for a week in the refrigerator.
  1. Even while transferring the khoya sugar mixture to the greased plate you feel like it is not like a whole mass. Do not worry, it will be perfect when cooled.
  2. I used unsweetened Khoya, which i got from Mustafa center.
  3. Pistachios can be replaced by almonds too
