Flour Burfi

Simple and easy burfis that can be made in minutes and tastes amazing and soft. It actually tastes much like Kaju katli. If you are looking for a quick last minute sweet to make, this is your perfect choice.

I had been seeing so many posts about Maida burfi and they looked mouthwatering. I decided to try them too but not with Maida. Wheat flour is not so different from Maida so I thought I will try it and also replaced Ghee with olive oil. The taste was great but Burfis were rock hard when they cooled down. So I made it with Ghee this time and guess what, they are soft, crumbly and so very tasty.

Though I have not replaced Ghee with oil, I have used very little ghee, as little as 2 tablespoons. You can alter the quantity as per your choice. Most of the Maida burfi recipes I have seen, are made of Sugar. As usual, I am very conscious about using sugar and hence, these burfis are made of Jaggery. Honestly, it did not make much difference as per my neighbor who tasted and complimented. :D My mum always says that it makes a lot of difference to choose jaggery over sugar not only for better taste but for your health too. I am just glad I got away with modifying another recipe and here it is. Please feel free to modify it as you like.
