I adapted this recipe from an old magazine.Its a quick and easy to make burfi recipe.This burfi is made of milk powder and maida.I used Amul milk powder. Just a drop of ghee is used to grease the plate. As I tried this for the first time, I used minimum quantity of ingredients.It came out very well.It was so soft with nice flavor.I got 10 small pieces.Do try this easy burfi recipe for this Diwali and enjoy ! Soon I will share my MIL’s Maida burfi/Maida cake recipe.

Do check out my easy cashew badam burfi recipe if u try this sweet successfully. Both are done with very similar procedure and cashew burfi needs no sugar syrup consistency. Any beginner can try it:)

  • In a kadai, add 1/2 cup of sugar & 1/4 cup of water. Add 2 pinches of food color and vanilla essence. Mix well and melt the sugar.
  • Boil till one string consistency.When you take the syrup and slide between your thumb and fore finger, it forms a single string.

  • Lower the flame completely and add the maida+milk powder. Mix well till it gets blended with sugar syrup. SWITCH OFF THE FIRE and remove the kadai. Stir the mixture really well for few minutes. It will start to thicken and leave the sides of pan. At that time, remove the mixture to a greased burfi tray. I transferred them to a tray lined with butter paper.So I did not use ghee at all.  Level the mixture with the base of a bowl. Mark shapes once it turns warm. Serve & enjoy ! This burfi stays well for a week if stored in an air tight box. maida burfi tile3 maida burfi tile4

  1. Do not mix the burfi mixture for long time after it starts to thicken. It will become crumbly.So remove it at the correct time.
  2. As we are using milk powder, it is not necessary to roast the maida in ghee. If you are using maida alone, then you have to roast the maida in half the quantity of ghee.

Melt in mouth burfi is ready !!
Once again thank u all for ur support and encouragement:) Have a happy diwali :)
