Mixed Atta Burfi – Post no. 300 !

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 !

1. Wheat atta – 3/4 cup

2. Chick peas atta –  1/2 cup

3. Peanuts – 1/4 cup

4. Chopped Jaggery – 1 cup

4. Pure ghee – 3/4 cup

5. Cardamom – 4-5

  2. Hi Pachi,

    Thanks for all your sweets recipes, I try every single of them. Its very handy esp when kids are growing up. I make sweets and give it to them in their lunch box for some instant energy (esp the jaggery ones).
    Kindly keep up the good work.
