Maida-Besan Burfi

Maida-Besan Burfi
Delicious and easy to make this burfi.  Just I tried made with maida with a mixture of besan and the taste was awesome !

Besan - ¾ cup
Maida - ¼ cup
Sugar - 2 ½ cups
Ghee - ½ cup
Saffron - ¼ tsp (warm & powder)
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Chopped nuts - to garnish (optional)


1.In a kadai, heat the ghee.Mix the besan and maida & add to the ghee.
2.Roast on a low flame till the colour changes & a roasted aroma comes. Remove from flame.
3.Add enough water to sugar in a saucepan, to immerse just completely.
4.Heat on a medium flame stirring continuously till it dissolves.
5.Boil till it is past one-string consistency – if you drop a tsp in cold water you should be able to roll it into a soft but firm ball.
6.Remove immediately & add the fried mixture along with. Cardamom powder .Stir well for a few mts – it will start solidifying Transfer to a greased plate,  & cut into pieces.
