Seven Cup Burfi (Halva) / ಸೆವೆನ್ ಕಪ್ ಬರ್ಫಿ & Awards!

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

This Burfi is called as Seven Cup Burfi because its prepared using totally seven cup of different ingredients. Normally, it will be prepared using Besan flour, but I have replaced it with sooji rava / semolina in this recipe. My aunt prepares the burfi in this way, which will be very tasty :P Also, another variation I made here is that, I have used only 6 1/2 cups of ingredients.. i.e., I have reduced the quantity of sugar by 1/2 cup. Somehow, I feel that it will be too sweetish if whole 3 cups of sugar is added. That's why, this small variation in the original recipe!


Preparation time: 35 - 40 minutes
Yield : 25 Burfi of medium size

Ingredients:
Semolina / sooji rava - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 1/2 cup

Method:
Take a heavy bottom pan and pour ghee and semolina into it. 
Roast the semolina for 4 - 5 minutes and add milk, sugar and grated coconut.
Keep stirring continuously on medium flame to avoid sticking to the bottom.
Keep a wide plate ready, greased with ghee to pour the Burfi mixture.
After stirring for sometime on medium flame, water content in the burfi mixture will start decreasing and it starts forming a kind of dough, without sticking to the bottom. Once you reach this stage, you can confirm yourself that 3/4th of your work is done!
Within few minutes, mixture starts puffing up little-bit and small bubbles will appear.
Switch off the flame immediately and pour the mixture onto the greased plate.
Spread the mixture evenly using a rolling pin. Allow it to cool for few minutes.
Cut it into desired shapes when it is still warm. Transfer the Burfi into an airtight container once it is cool.
This Burfi tastes very good with the nice aroma of ghee :)


Tips:
  • If the burfi mixture has stuck to the bottom, pour the mixture to another pan and continue the process. Else, it will spoil the whole burfi mixture.
  • Use only fresh ghee without any bad smell for this burfi.
  • Adding a few strands of saffron will make this burfi more tasty.

    And one more thing is, my dear friend Julie has passed me 2 Awards :) First award for me..I'm feeling so happy <:-P Do visit Julie's space sometime; she has a nice collection of recipes.
