  • 1 part - all-purpose flour/maida
  • 2 parts - sugar
  • 3/4 part - ghee/vegetable oil
  • 3-4 drops - vanilla essence
  • 6-8 - cashewnuts
  • a pinch of food color

How to Make Easy Maida Burfies

  • Keep a greased plate ready and a zip lock bag greased for levelling purpose. In a pan/kadai, heat all the ghee and fry the cashew nuts golden brown.
  • Add the maida slowly and fry over low flame until the maida is fried evenly. Keep aside.
  • In a heavy-bottomed vessel/kadai (non-stick recommended), heat the sugar with water (enough to immerse it) to a one-string consistency.
  • Add the food colour and vanilla essence and turn off the flame.
  • Remove from the stove, add the fried maida and keep stirring.
  • When the mixture thickens, spread evenly on the greased plate and use the zip lock bag to make the surface smooth and level.
  • Allow to cool, and, while still a little warm, grease a knife and cut into desired shapes.
  • After it completely cools, invert the plate with the burfis on to another plate.
  • Then transfer the slices to an airtight container.
