Maida Burfi | Halkova | Diwali Sweets

Maida Burfi/ Halkova, a delicious fudge made from maida/all purpose flour, ghee and sugar. Looking for a super easy & no fail burfi recipe for this diwali? Then this maida burfi is for you !! I had already shared maida burfi recipe in which sugar syrup is prepared to make the burfi. But the recipe that i'm sharing today doesn't need sugar syrup,so no need to worry about single string consistency of syrup, this recipe is so easy to make perfect burfi and works like a charm every SINGLE time. 
The maida burfi made from sugar syrup has chewy texture whereas  this maida burfi has melt in your mouth texture just like besan ladoo or moong dal ladoo. Personally I like this burfi more than the burfi made with sugar syrup because of its texture !! Ok, before moving to the recipe, let's check out the FAQs !!

What is Maida Burfi / Halkova ?
A delicious fudge made from maida/all purpose flour, ghee and sugar.

What are the other flavors I can use in this burfi?
Apart from cardamom and rose flavor, the vanilla and pistachio flavors also taste good. 

Can I reduce the amount of ghee ?
No, the burfi needs the mentioned amount of ghee for melt in your mouth texture. 

Any substitute for ghee?
Commercially, vanaspati/dalda/shortening is used in this recipe,so ghee is the best alternative already !

Any tips for beginners ?
  • Make sure to let the roasted maida cool down(it's so important) completely before adding sugar. Otherwise the whole mixture would become watery and unable to set. 
  • Make sure to roasted the flour well otherwise it tastes raw
  • This is one of the recipes that you have to follow the measurements religiously. That's the key to get a perfect and tasty burfi.
  • If you're a beginner, then I would recommend trying this burfi with a single flavor on the first try. It would be a lot easier.
