Seven cup barfi.... 7 cup barfi

Seven cup burfi is a super easy and super yummy burfi that everyone in the family will love. We used to live in a township when wee were kids. Diwali was so much fun. Getting up early in the morning, getting ready at the earliest, bursting little crackers, going to friends houses, eating lots and lots of sweets and savouries, enjoying playing around and then again back home to celebrate with lights and crackers . I used to love each and every moment of diwali. The varieties of sweets and savouries presented at everyones place used to wow me. Everyone was so good at that. I dont know how they all managed to learn so much. Great job

Now this burfi is one among my favourites that I used to relish during the festive season. My mom never used to make it but one of my aunt's used to. She was so good at it. Every time she would make it I was sure to get my share. Remembering those good old days :) 

The taste is so perfect with that special hint of coconut flavour that the thought of it makes me drool :) Simple recipe but just a little patience is what is needed to get the perfect texture


Serves... makes around 15 pieces
Serve option... Room Temp

This is what u'll need...

Besan / Gram flour - 1 cup
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 3 cups

Here is the stir....
  • Measure all the ingredients and keep it ready before you start aking the barfi

  • Pour a teaspoon of ghee a wide and heavy bottomed pan
  • Measure in a cup of besan into the kadhai. I used a small cup. You can use any cup but make sure to measure all the ingredients using the same cup
  • Roast the gram flour for about 3-4 minutes on low flame or till you can smell the roasted aroma 
  • Add one cup of grated coconut to the pan and make sure the flame is still on low
  • Now add three cups of sugar into the pan. Give it a good stir so that everything is mixed well
  • Measure in a cup of milk. Mix everything well and ensure there are no lumps

  • Pour 1/2 cup of ghee and  give it a good mix. Keep stirring continuously to avoid sticking to the bottom

  • The mixture will start bubbling. Let it continue while you keep stirring. Continue stirring for about 4-5 minutes
  • Add remaining ghee to the mixture and continue stirring. Cook for another 4-5 minutes

  • Once the mixture is ready it will start leaving the sides of the pan. This is the right time to turn off the flame

  • Pour the mixture onto a greased plate and spread it evenly using the back of a spoon
  • While still hot, mark lines to cut the barfi into desired shape
  • Let it cool down, then separate the pieces
  • Serve your loved ones and let them enjoy it

                                            • Keep flame on low or low-medium and not more than that
                                            • I havent grated the coconut instead I just give it a quick pulse in the mixer
                                            • Cut it into pieces while hot to get clean cut pieces
