As usual this year also i thought of putting up a couple of diwali recipes and this time it is Walnut burfi .  The simplest food best for health and it is certainly the case of nuts, in which mother nature has crafted nearly a perfect package of protein, healthy fats , fiber, antioxidants, many minerals and vitamins.

Among nuts, the case may be made that walnuts are king, as research shows they may boost your health in a number of ways at very easy-to-achieve “doses.”

Eating just one ounce of walnuts a day (that’s about seven shelled walnuts) may be all it takes to take advantage of their beneficial properties.Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors.

It has cancer fighting properties, walnut consumption helps  to keep up healthy heart, it helps in weight control, improved reproduction health in men, it helps in healthy brain too.  I thought of putting up this wonderful Walnut burfi to celeberate this diwali.  Here it goes the recipe of Walnut burfi…..

1. Walnuts – 1 and 1/2 cup

2. Brown/normal sugar – 3/4 cup

3. Milk – 2 and 1/4 cup
