 Yields: 12-15 Burfis
 Recipe CategoryDessert-Indian Sweet
 Recipe CuisineIndian

   Ingredients needed

   For the cream colored cardamom flavored burfi

   Crumbled unsweetened Khoya/mawa -1 1/2 cup (300 grams)
   Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup (100 grams)
   Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
   Ghee - 1 tsp melted

   For the Chocolate Burfi

   Crumbled unsweetened Khoya/mawa -1 cup (200 grams)
   Powdered Sugar - 1/3 cup (70 grams)
   Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
   Ghee - 1 tsp

   Ghee - 1 tsp melted for greasing
   Pistashio - 1-2 tbsp finely chopped (optional)


Bring khoya or mawa to room temperature. I have used ready made store bought khoya. Crumble the khoya with your fingers or grate it. If you crumble 300 grams of mawa and measure it in a cup, it will be approximately 1 1/2 cup. If you crumble 200 grams of mawa and measure it in a cup, it will be approximately 1 cup.

Powder sugar, measure it and keep it ready.

Grease the plate or tray with ghee and keep it ready.

Keep the ingredients ready for both the burfis separately.


First we will make the white colored burfi.

Melt a tsp of ghee in a pan preferably, a non stick pan, keep the heat very low and add crumbled mawa (1 1/2 cup), powdered sugar and cardamom powder.

Keep stirring continuously throughout and cook on low heat. If you do not stir, the mixture will get burnt. The mixture will melt and become thin as seen in the picture below.

Cook for another 5-6 minutes on medium heat, stirring continuously. By now, the mixture will start to leave the sides of the pan.  If you overcook, the burfi will become dry.

Transfer the mixture into the greased plate, tap the plate or spread the mixture evenly. Grease a spoon with ghee and even/smoothen the surface of the burfi. Leave it to set for 1 hour. We will prepare the chocolate burfi after 1 hour.

After 1 hour-

By now, the white colored burfi would have set. Heat a tsp of ghee in a pan, add crumbled mawa, powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
