Blogging Marathon# 27: Week 2/ Day 4

Theme: Traditional Dishes

Dish: 7 Cup Sweet

Today’s traditional dish is very simple and easy to make, but the end result almost makes you look like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours. These burfis just melt in your mouth and all the effort you put into it is mix it for may be 10-15 minutes.

The recipe is quite self explanatory – there are 7 cups of ingredients that are mixed until it thickens to burfi consistency. I have already posted the recipe for 7 cup sweet a while back, but this is one has slightly different ingredients. I used half cup each of cashews and almonds instead of 1 cup of coconut for a smoother burfis.

Use any cup size to measure the ingredients, only thing to remember is to use the same cup to measure ALL the ingredients. I used a 2/3 cup measure. One thing I might change the next time I make this is to use may be 2.5cups of sugar instead of whole 3 cups, it was a tad bit too sweet to my liking.

  • 1 cup Ghee
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • ½ cup Cashews
  • ½ cup Almonds
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ tsp Cardamom Ground
7 Cup Sweet (Burfi)
Instructions
  1. Grind almonds and cashews to a fine powder.
  2. Grease a plate with ghee and set it aside,
  3. Combine besan, ghee, sugar, milk and the nuts mixture in a wide nonstick pan. Cook on medium flame, mixing frequently. Sugar will melt and the mixture will get liquidy initially and starts to thicken as it cooks.
  4. Once the mixture starts to thicken, then stir continuously until the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. The whole process takes about 25-30 minutes depending on the quantity of ingredients you are making.
  5. Add ground cardamom and mix well.
  6. Pour the mixture on the greased plate and spread into an even layer with the back of a wide spoon. Let cool before cutting into diamonds or squares.
  7. These store well in an airtight container for up to 7-10 days.

  1. Lovely pictures Pavani, this was almost the first sweet that I made on myself…so this is surely a dear sweet for me..:)

  2. Fantastic! I am very fond of Besan sweets and this one seems to be simple quick version. Bookmarked for Diwali collection.loved the presentation 🙂

  3. Wonderful burfi!! 3 cups of sugar, Pavani?? I seriously avoid making this for this very fact …very sinful. I cannot resist popping them into my mouth and hence avoid it 🙂 .

  4. Harini, yes this has quite a bit of sugar. But the 3 cups can be any size cup that is used to measure the ingredients. I used a 2/3 cup measure, so I used a total of 2 cups sugar and I got a about 35 – 40 burfis out of which I gave away more than half.

  5. Very yummy ones. I reduce the sugar and ghee quantities usually. And coconut goes in place of nuts.

  6. Awesome actually I love to cook the traditional sweets and like Burfi and also want to try this recipe that is given here thanks for sharing this,,,,Click Here
