7 cups Burfi

It took me a while before i could get a hang of making burfi's. Though the consistency of the burfi would be fine, i would always get confused when to stop stirring and when i should take it of flame. I wouldn't have the heart to throw it so i would just make round balls of the same and eat them :D.

After a couple of attempts, i moved a step ahead and have realized when i should remove the burfi.. 7 cups is one such attempt. My mom would make it often and when i was a kid, for some strange reason i would go around telling everyone that amma doesn't know anything but 7 cups!! :(.. Poor thing! But for me she makes the best 7 cups ....

7 Cups Burfi

1. Milk - 1 cup
2. Besan/ Chickpea Flour - 1 cup
3. Coconut - 1 cup
4. Ghee - 1 cup
5. Sugar - 3 cups

Preparation Time!!
1. Take a non-stick pan and add all the ingredients and mix well
2. Stir well and continue to do so till the mixture starts to leave the pan and starts taking the form of dough (the mixture starts becoming a little hard)
3. Pour the mixture on a plate greased with ghee and let it cool for 7-10 minutes
4. When warm cut them and the desired shape is got !
