The Seven Cup sweet/burfi


The recipe for this sweet comes from my Mom and you can find it here. The recipe is listed below is the same except that I've added a few instructions for the first-timers.

Essentially you need 1 cup each of: milk, besan (chickpea flour), sooji, desi ghee, grated coconut and 2 cups of sugar.

  1. Grease a flat plate.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a heavy bottomed pan and keep on medium-low heat.
  3. Keep stirring till the batter leaves the sides of the pan. You'll know it when the batter almost seems to be moving together (not completely but almost).
  4. Take it off the heat.
  5. Spread the batter/mixture on the plate. To flatten it, use the base of a bowl. Grease it with ghee too so that it doesn't stick.
  6. (Optional)Make markings in the flattened mixture as you would finally cut it.  This makes it easier to cut once the burfi is done.
  7. Let it cool. Once cool, cut it into squares.

I made these as a prasad.
