Double Decker Milk Powder Burfi | Vanilla Chocolate Burfi | Diwali Sweet

Double Decker Milk Powder Burfi / Vanilla Chocolate Burfi, a two layer burfi made from the milk powder, here one layer is vanilla flavor and another one is chocolate flavor. It's my long term wish to make this kind of double layer burfi, after a few disasters, I finally nailed this recipe and  was so glad that it turned out so delicious and I can make pieces without any fuss like my earlier attempt. Guess this was my 4th attempt in making this milk powder burfi to get the perfect texture and taste.Since i'm saying that it took me 4 attempt to get it right, doesn't mean it's difficult to make, all it need is complete attention for entire cooking without leaving unattended even for a second.
Milk powder is a very delicate ingredient to handle, even if it is left unnoticed for a few seconds while making this burfi, it starts to burn at the bottom easily and the whole mixture becomes waste. So from all these attempts, I have learned a few things, first it should be cooked in low flame for the entire process to get that perfect texture. Second, remove from the flame once it starts to leave the sides, cooking beyond this point makes the chewy burfi unless you're intentionally looking for chewy burfi, then cook for a few more minutes after the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. In one of my attempts, I had cooked one layer of burfi for a few more extra minutes and it turned out a little chewy, but ST liked the chewy layer more than the other one. So it's really up to you how you prefer your burfi and cook accordingly.
Which milk powder works best for this burfi?
I have tried this burfi with both full fat milk powder and non- fat milk powder. Both turned out good. 
Where can I find non-fat milk powder? 
If you're in the US/Canada, non fat milk powder is easily available in all grocery sections. You can find them at the coffee section !! Full fat milk powder is easily available in any Indian stores.

Can I make one layer only ?
Yes, of course. You can make either vanilla or chocolate layers alone.
Why is my burfi chewy ?
As I said earlier, cooking it for a longer time, makes the burfi chewy.

Any other tips?
Cook in low flame and don't leave unattended not even for a second. Follow these tips religiously to get yummy burfi

Now let's check out how to make these super delicious burfi !!

  5. Beautifully made burfi. We learn a lot from failures than victories. Milk powder is so sensitive and it is always a struggle when it comes to making burfi with it.
