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.

  • 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.

    • 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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
