|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
- 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups milk powder
- Grease a plate or tray with 1/2 tablespoon of ghee. Set aside.
- In a pan, add the sugar and water. Boil for 3–4 minutes or until the sugar solution thickens a bit (no need to wait for string consistency).
- Add the milk powder and mix until it is well combined with sugar solution and lump-free.
- Mix and cook over low flame until it forms a single mass or dough that separates from the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of ghee. Mix well and switch off the flame.
- Transfer the dough onto the greased plate or tray. Form a level, single block using a knife, spoon or any flat surface.
- Cut into the dough to form the desired pieces, and let it sit for 1 hour.
- Tasty milk powder burfi is ready to serve. Store it in an airtight container and enjoy.
- Cook over a low flame to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- Chopped nuts and cardamom powder can be added.
- The time to form the mixture into a dough or single mass varies from 3 to 10 minutes. It depends on the pan, the flame and the milk powder used.
- Do not overcook. Remove the dough from the pan once it forms a single mass. If you cook it too long, it will become hard.
