  1. 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?

  2. 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!
