Seven Cup Burfi

People from Banglore can instantly recognise this sweet. :o). It's name seven cup burfi coz it needs 7 cups of ingredient! duh!!!. I had failed at my initial attempts few years back. It used to be either too watery or too thick. Then over the time I have experted in this. My kids love this one too. I thought of making this for my Bon Vivant Moments - Sweet. It sure smells festive when you are preparing it and tastes divine!

Prep Time: 5 min. | Cooking Time: 40 min.

Bengal Gram Flour/ chickpea flour/ Besan – 1 Cup
Desiccated coconut – 1 Cup
Ghee - 1 cup
milk – 1 Cup
Sugar – 3 Cups (I use brown sugar for half the quantity)
Cardamom powder – 1 pinch
Ghee for greasing the plate.

Method of Preparation:

~ Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready.

~ In a big pan fry besan for few minutes (about 5 minutes). This will avoid forming lumps. Take out the besan and keep it aside.

 ~ In the same pan bring milk to boil.
~ Add sugar and mix until it’s dissolved.
~ Add coconut and cardamom powder and mix well.
~ Now start adding besan slowly in batches. Keep stirring continuously to make sure lumps are not formed.
~ After besan is mixed, start adding ghee 1 tbsp. at a time. Making sure every time it gets well incorporated into the mix.
~ Continue to stir and cook until it starts to leave the sides, frothes and starts to come together. Look how there is ghee at the edge.

~ Switch off the heat and pour it in prepared dish/ Plate. Smooth the top and leave it to cool.
~ Once it’s cooled off little (after an hour), cut them into little pieces with greased knife and enjoy!
~ I added chopped almonds to decorate.

This is off to my Bon Vivant Moments - Sweet Isn't it. :o)
