In India, we call it Burfi – a sweet cake which is very tasty. This fruit cake has a very rendering taste suitable for all occasions. It is extremely easy to make and a lot of viewers appreciated this sweet delight when I made it on National live television.

Condensed milk – 1 tin
Refined Flour (maida) – 1 1/4 cups
Sugar – 1 3/4 cups
Butter – 1 1/2 cups
Rose essence – A few drops
Tutti Fruity pieces – 1/4 cup
Ghee (clarified butter) – 3 teaspoons


Take a heavy bottomed pan or a non stick pan. Add all the ingredients except rose essence and ghee. Keep the pan on the stove and stir well . When the mixture starts to boil, reduce the stove to a medium flame and keep stirring. When the mix leaves the sides of the pan take out a small piece and roll to a ball. If you are able to roll it without being sticky, then it is ready. Now add the rose essence and ghee. After stirring well, pour into a greased tray. Allow it to set for about 2 to 3 hours. Then cut to squares and serve.

Make the burfi in a medium or sim flame, as it will retain a creamy colour and not discolour.
