Transfer the mixture to the parchment paper lined tray/pan. Since I wanted thick burfis, I used only half the pan to spread the mixture.

Grease a spoon with ghee and smoothen the surface. Leave it to cool. Once it cools, grease a knife with a little ghee and make cuts but do not remove the pieces. Refrigerate for an hour for it to set and then remove the pieces carefully and serve.

You can decorate it with a cashew nut if preferred.
