Why I love this?

It is nostalgia all the way. My mamis make this very often and the best part of it is tutti frutti. When I saw tutti frutti at the groceries last month, I took it keeping this in back of my mind.

The vanilla, ghee, wheat flour as well as tutti frutti is a heavenly combo and I highly recommend to try this to experience the flavor and taste.

I don’t think anyone adds tutti frutti to such burfis, I always been admiring how they made it in those days itself.

Also, using maida and vanaspati was always double guilt for me, so this is a better version of the same and bonus points, it is more tasty and smells heavenly.

Substitutions

Wheat flour – I used Indian atta (Ashirwad). So depending on the wheat flour’s nature, the texture also slightly varies.

Vanilla extract – I used vanilla extract, but you can also use essence.. Vanilla Extract is pure while essence is artificial flavor. While using essence, note that you have to add just 3 drops as it is strong.

Tutti frutti – Main ingredient that I love is tutti frutti and I suggest you to try at least once in burfi to know yourself. If you don’t get it, you can skip.

Food color – Recommend using Natural, plant based food color. Google for it, you will find one sure.

Sugar – You can also try using unrefined sugar to prepare this. If you want to use jaggery, try my gur papdi instead.

Ghee – Neutral smelling oil can be used or even Vanaspati for vegan option.

My notes

Prepare syrup in medium flame so that you do not get passed the stage quickly. Otherwise it will turn to brittle before you pour.

Pour into the tray when you know its thickening faster. This way you can level better.

Some materials retain heat more and takes longer to cool down, while others is just opposite. So the mixture may take more or less time depending on it. So pour accordingly to the tray.

If you leave without stirring, your burfi wont be smooth in texture.

Cut into pieces when it is warm itself.

Why not do the burfi in stove and why off fire towards end?

This way you have total control over the texture and fail proof method to get burfi in shape. No turning candy hard or no turning halwa.

Top tip

  • Measure the ghee after melting.
  • Make sure to roast the atta well, but don’t change it’s color.
  • Initailly when you taste the burfi, a slight wheat flour flavor will come (It’s pleasant though since we roast well). After few hours, a pleasant sweet stall style burfi is ready.
  • Keeps good 4-5 days at room temperature.
