    1. Mash or grate khoya. Cook it in a heated wok or karahi, until it becomes pink…ish in colour and comes off the edges of the pan. Keep aside in a metal or heat proof bowl.

  • 3.

    2. Bring water to boil add sugar and stir to dissolve. Boil briskly until 3 wire consistency is obtained.

  • 4.

    3. Pour over the mawa, mix quickly and turn out on to the greased tray.

  • 5.

    4. Spread with a spatula, to approximately 2 cm. thickness. Even out with wetted fingers (to stop sticking).

  • 6.

    5. Sprinkle pistachio/almonds, if used, and press gently into the khoya.

  • 7.

    6. Put silver sheets on top gently, covering most of the surface. These come with a paper backing. You simply place each sheet on the burfi/barfi, silver side down and peel off the paper.

  • 8.

    7. Cut burfies/barfies in diamond or square shapes when cool and store in an airtight box.
