Easy Maida Burfi Recipe - Quick Barfi made in 20 mins

In my place, there is a sweet stall. They sell a burfi which taste so yummy. It is soft and just melt in your mouth. Yesterday me and my mom were having an argument, she told me that those burfis are made with gram flour, but i told her that no not at all, they are made with maida. This argument got very serious and i told her that i will make you that burfi right now, lets taste and decided. Immediately i got into action and made it, and when she tasted it she accepted that it is made with maida.

When i made it yesterday i didn't take picture of it, so i made it again today and took pictures. I can't wait to share it with you all. This needs just 4 ingredients and it is a breeze to make. The key thing is to get the syrup right, everything else is easy peasy.

  1. I am going to make this. I have also noted down 2 other burfi recipes from your blog to make as xmas gifts for friends. I'm glad that it's made with normal flour because I don't use chickpea flour regularly- the rest would go to waste when I buy a bag. Could you also do a soan papdi or patisa recipe- with the flaky layers?

  2. I appreciate your patience and sincerity. You made it back to back just to post in on the blog. Now whenever I enter my kitchen, I remember you and your blog as I have been following it since 3 years. Every day the first thing in the morning, I open google and see what you have posted.

  4. Hi I made these but it became hard while I was putting it in a square pan why is that?

  5. Once we take off the stove and add the maid a mixture...should we mix it and put it back or just keep mixing it with out putting it back on the stove

  6. Once it is taken off heat need not put back to heat again? The consistency is achieved just by stirring off heat?
