How to Make Plain Almond Burfi

  • Soak the almonds for about 5 to 6 hours and peel the skin.
  • Then measure 1 cup and grind it coarsely in a blender with the milk and empty it on a non-stick container in which you are going to prepare the burfi.
  • Add sugar and cook on high flame initially and then reduce the heat gradually.
  • Keep adding the ghee little by little.
  • When the mixture begins to leave the sides pour it into a greased tray.
  • A square or rectangle non-stick cookie sheet, or non-stick baking tray, or an aluminium foil tray will be perfect to spread the burfi as you can cut them into perfect squares.
  • Cut it when it is still warm but firm enough.
