Double Decker Milk Powder Burfi | Chocolate Burfi | Diwali Sweet

Double Decker Milk Powder 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 few disasters, finally nailed this recipe and i 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 left unnoticed for few secs while making this burfi, it started to burn at the bottom easily and the whole mixture becomes waste. So from all these attempts, i have learned few things, first it should be cooked in low flame for entire process to get that perfect texture. Second, remove from the flame once it started to leave the sides, cooking beyond this point makes the chewy burfi, if you're intentionally looking for chewy burfi, then cook for few more minutes after the mixture started to leave the sides of the pan. In one of my attempts, i had cooked one layer of burfi few more extra minutes and it turned out little chewy, but ST like the chewy layer more than the other one. So it's really up to you how you perfer your burfi and cook accordingly.After a few months of break from Blogging Marathon,i have joined this month and the theme for this week is "colorful dishes without using any food color ". Since Diwali is just around the corner, i took this as a chance to make colorful sweets and snacks without any food color. Starting today, there will be three colorful sweets and snacks that can be prepared on coming diwali/deepavali. So stay tuned, for the starter, let's see how to make this colorful double decker milk powder 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.
