பால் கோவா பர்பி / Pal Gova Burfi / Milk Burfi

Dear Friends,
Another interesting sweet with the ingredients available at home.It is time consuming but the end result would be absolutely "Lip Smacking"

Ingredients
  • Milk - 1/2 litre or 4 cups
  • Sooji / Rava - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3 or 4 cups (I used only 3 cups)
  • Ghee - 1/2 cup
Time Required : 45 minutes
Yield : 38 big pieces

Method
  • Dry roast rava in a thick bottomed kadai and keep it aside.The raw smell should disappear and it should emit nice aroma

  • Add sugar and pour milk over it.Boil it till the sugar dissolves.Do this in high flame
  • Simmer the flame and slowly add the roasted rava by stirring it continously.Make sure no lumps are formed
  • Pour ghee after 10 minutes and keep stirring it on a medium flame
  • The entire mass will gradually condense /solidify and becomes slight pinkish in colour.Again simmer the flame now
  • After sometime you will notice big bubbles and the mixture becoming frothy slowly leaving the sides of the kadai

(A small tip for beginners: At this stage pour a spoonful of sweet on a cup and check whether it solidifies within 2 minutes.If it is so then this is the correct stage / consistency.Switch off the stove)

  • Within few minutes the mixture will start becoming porous (poothu varudhu in tamil)
  • Switch off the stove and transfer it into a greased plate
  • Allow it cool and cut it into small blocks
