maida burfi         
I thought some how I will send entries for the events FIC YELLOW,My Legume affair and Click ...Today I did one and the rest in following days I should be able to do....! Regarding this Maida burfi, My mom used to make in my childhoods, but I have to say that,My Maamis are expert! They do this in a jiffy that too perfect...!! My maamis used to add colorful tutty fruity to this,which I like the most,but unfortunately I didn't have any in stock,so I was not able to ...
            But this burfi is really easy to make,especially for beginners who wants to try hands in making sweet! It will be ready in a jiffy,with the simple ingredients,but taste will be great,soft,they just melt in your mouth...

Maida burfi recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Makes: 12 pieces

Ingredients


All purpose flour/Maida/Plain flour  1/2 cup 
Sugar  1 cup 
Ghee/Vegetable oil/dalda  1/4 cup 
Vanilla essence  3-4 drops 
Cashew nuts  6-8 nos 
Food colour (I used yellow)  A pinch 
Water   for sugar syrup 

Method:

  1. Keep a greased plate ready and a zip lock cover greased for leveling purpose.
  2. In a pan/kadai,heat all the ghee and fry cashew nuts to golden brown and then add slowly the maida and fry in low flame, till the maida gets fried evenly (the ghee should be hot enough before u add,if you put a pinch of flour in it it should get fried immediately).Keep aside.

  4. In a heavy bottomed vessel/kadai(non stick recommended),heat the sugar with little water to immerse the sugar,to one string consistency( If you pour the syrup in little cold water kept in a bowl,should form a string which doesn't dissolve immediately).Now add the food colour,essence and put off the stove.
  5. DSC_6340DSC_6342
  6. Remove from the stove and add the fried maida and keep on stirring.(yes Off fire!)
  7. At one stage the mixture gets thickened you will know and when it is still loose enough to spread in a plate,spread evenly in the greased plate kept ready and use the zip lock to make the surface smooth and leveled...
  8. After it gets cooled down,still warm,grease the knife and cut into desired shapes.After it completely cools down,invert the plate with the burfis into another plate and tap gently and ur burfis are ready!
  9. Transfer to an airtight container,tastes great,just melts in the mouth!

  49. I have 2 questions:
    1. How do you use the ziplock? Is this out normal ziplock bags.

    2. What if one doesnt understand the one string consistency of water + sugar?Any other way to judge?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Why is this not coming in the diwali sweets list?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Neha,
    when we pour the burfi for leveling, the top surface could be looking uneven, so I use a ziploc that is greazed with ghee and use it to level that surface. It makes the burfi look smooth.

    If you swipe the back of the ladle u use (for stirring the syrup) with you forefinger and feel it in between your thumb, the there will be a thin string forming in between the fingers. Hope this helps. Let me know.

    Vaishnavi,

    I will look into it and add it. Thanks. But it is there in the top picture scroll and also in the recipe index. If you mean the labels then I will look and add if its not there.

  52. Hi Raks,

  53. I did maida burfi and really its so tasty and good looking that everybody thought that i have purchased from outside. really a great recipe.another wonder is the person who did this is a gentle man. when i can do it why not ladies then?
    cooking is also one of my hobbies but i left it long back but due to Raks kitchen my hobby again got triggered.
    I also did corn halwa OOOOOH!!! that was still super, people thought it is also from shop. so two sweet dishes on my dipavali really great.
    One thing to say that what ever you do in cooking you should invest a lot of love towards it then only the things go in a write direction.
    Thanks a lot Raks you really rock ......

  54. Hi,

    I have tried many recipes from your site.. All are simple and easy to make.. Tried stuff like badusha, pizza n more.. :) This recipe looks really yum... But when I tried, it formed crumbles instead of a smooth mixture... So I could not put it in a plate or cut into pieces. Any idea on wat mistake I could have done?

    ReplyDelete
  55. The sugar syrup has been boiled more than the consistency you needed. Or did you reduce ghee/ dalda?

    ReplyDelete
  56. hi....... i tried this recipe . came good . if the same recipe replaced with besan, it will turn as mysore pak right? can we try?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I too have thought so, will have to try, not sure, if I try, I will post it :)
