Badam Burfi / Chocolate Burfi (Chocolate Fudge)- Time to celebrate

Its time to celebrate. It is my blog’s 2nd anniversary and also Diwali. I cannot believe that its been 2 years that I started my small space. Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

The diya was made by my little one at school
Coming to the festival  Diwali, the festival of lights is here and everyone is busy buying crackers, diyas and most importantly sweets. Almost all the sweet stalls are filled with people buying sweets for friends and family.

Since I grew up in Andhra, I enjoy the colours of diwali, lights, crackers and so on. Now as all are busy making sweets, I thought of making some for my little one as she is very fond of sweets and if the sweets are homemade, that will be very natural and healthy.

I have made two varieties of burfis. One is almond and the other one is chocolate burfi. I only had plan of making almond burfi, but as I was going through my old cookery book, I came across this chocolate fudge which is very easy to make and can be made within minutes with few ingredients.

I love cooking and mostly baking. But when it comes to making sweets, I am a bit behind. My Mom used to make Kerala cuisine, but she used to try and make whatever we asked for. After I came back from school, she used to give me surprises by preparing all these. So I tried these and both the burfis came out quite well.

For badam burfi:

  1. Almonds- 1Cup
  2. Sugar- ¾ Cup
  3. Milk- ¼ Cup
  4. Cardamom Powder- ½ tsp
  1. Soak almonds in hot water for about 20- 30 min. Peel the skin and grind it to a fine paste by adding required amount of milk and keep it aside.
  2. Add sugar and grind it along with almonds.
  3. Heat a nonstick pan and pour the almond mixture and stir well till it separates from the sides of the pan. In this add the cardamom powder and mix well.
  4. Pour this in a greased pan and smoothen the surface with a spoon. Keep this aside till it sets well. Cut them into squares and serve.
Chocolate Burfi:
  1. Milkmade / Condensed milk- 200gms
  2. Butter- ¼ Cup
  3. Cocoa Powder- 3tbsp
  1. Mix the condensed milk and butter without any lumps and heat it in a pan for about 10 -15 min or till it becomes brown in colour.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and mix well.
  3. Pour this in a greased pan and keep this aside to set. Cut it into squares.
