Tricolor Burfi With Milk Powder / Three Layer Burfi

 

Tricolor symbolises our tricolor flag and burfi is a traditional sweet to celebrate the festival of rakshabandhan.

The Indian flag has three colour – saffron , white and green. So have made this three layer burfi with three colour similar to our national flag. I have used all the natural ingredients to give colour and flavor to the dish.

I request you all to try making this easy recipe for your family and friends and serve them healthy and artificial ingredient free.

Few points will make it easy to make the burfi at home:

  • Use a non stick pan.
  • Keep on stirring the mixture continuously after milk powder is added as milk powder is very sensitive to heat and will stick at the bottom of the pan quickly.
  • Keep  heat on low when mixing all the ingredients and then put the heat on medium and stir continuously till the mixture leaves the pan.
  • Try use butter paper to set the mixture or grease the tray or tin with ghee.
  • Let the mixture set for more time before cutting into pieces. You can also refrigerate if in hurry. The more time the mixture gets to set, the burfi will cut more easily with sharp edges. (I had to show the pieces cut in video and hence I have refrigerated for 15 minutes and then cut into pieces.
  • Use sharp knife to cut the burfi once set.
