And so here comes Mixed Atta Burfi. This is the 10th variety of Burfi I am putting up on this blog after – Sesame burfi, Milk burfi, Almond burfi, Seven cup burfi, Maida-suji burfi, Besan Burfi, Tomato Burfi, Coconut Burfi and Peanut Burfi ! This is a very simple burfi though which I learnt from my Gujrati friend back in Assam over 17 years ago. It is made of a mixture of both wheat atta and chickpeas atta with a bit of roasted peanut powder, jaggery and pure ghee.
As you read above, this is the 300th recipe on this blog. Thanks all for keeping me going all this long !
