Rich Decadent Melt-in-the-mouth Mango Burfi that is completely irresistable!
These taste wonderfully fresh and flavorful and contain no artificial essence or color!!
If you have a sweet tooth be sure to make a big batch…as these will disappear really fast! 🙂
You will need…
2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 cup fresh mango purée
1/2 cup canned mango purée
1 cup milk powder
1 1/4 cup sugar (add less or more according to personal taste)
3-4 green cardamoms finely powdered
A generous pinch of saffron
2 tbsp Sliced almonds and 1 tbsp sliced pistachios
Transfer the ricotta cheese, the fresh and canned mango purée to a heavy bottomed pan. And cook for 15 minutes on medium high heat stirring intermittently.
Next add the milk powder and stir to combine.
Now add the sugar, the ground cardamom and the saffron.
Cook on medium heat stirring often till the mix thickens.
Once it starts to thicken and come together, stir continously…
till it becomes a semi-solid mass and collects in the center of the pan.
Now transfer to a greased thali and spread evenly. Sprinkle liberally with the sliced nuts. Smoothen out top surface with greased hands and allow to cool.
Once slightly cool cut into squares/rectangles with a knife.
But wait till the mix cools completely before you separate the squares.
If you like you can also roll the same mix into round pedas too!
Both shapes have their own appeal 🙂
