Rava burfi recipe

one of the easiest of diwali sweets that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. though am not a sweet tooth, such homemade sweets are very much attractive to me. firstly because its not overly ‘gheed’ or overly ‘sweetened’. Yes, sometimes when we shop sweets, i feel there is too much ghee or too much sweet that eating half of the sweet makes us feel arghhh.

not only for that reason, homemade is always healthy and when you serve to your loved ones, you can make them eat one extra without any guilt. especially when having kids or aged people around, homemade is the best!

3. add warm milk to the pan and start whisking. milk should not be hot but Luke warm. reason is rava has to be cooked perfect and if milk is hot, it gets cooked quickly. if cold, takes time and needs more liquid by then. so add it luke warm for the correct texture of the rava in burfi.
