Sweets and snacks everywhere. This is my last sweet for this year Deepavali. A simple elegant, no kindling and kelaring for too Long, when the consistency is right. Maida almond burfi was my sudden sweet, I did not plan to make purposely. Before I could cut, my kid grabbed two pieces from it and went away. There was left over sugar syrup from the badusha. So just gave it a try. Let me know your comments after you try.
- Maida - 1 cup
- Almond powder - 1 tbsp
- Sugar - 3/4 cup
- Cardamom powder -1/2 tsp
- Saffron - little
- Food Colour - a pinch
- Ghee - 2 tsp
- In a pan, add sugar and 1/4 cup water. Boil it for one string consistency.
- Meanwhile, fry the maida flour in a pan for 2 mins.
- Once the sugar syrup has achieved the one string consistency, add the cardamom powder , food Color and saffron strands. Switch off the stove.
- Add the maida and almond powder in the sugar syrup and give a stir. Both gets mixed nicely and form into a dough consistency. Now add two tsp of ghee and stir well. The burfi comes out from the pan like a ball.
- Place the ball in a greased plate and flatten it. Allow it to cool.
- Cut once it is little warm.
Wonderful sweet in just 5 mins, added to my Deepavali platter.
