  • 2 cups grated or crumbled khova
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • Roasted and chopped nuts for topping
  • saffron
  • Cardamom powder


  • Grate and crumble the khova thoroughly.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon ghee in a thick pan. Add the grated khova and saute well. Saute in low flame till the color changes and turns dark brown. Remove to a plate.
  • Take sugar in another pan. Add 1/4 cup water and mix well. Bring this mixture to a boil and cook in medium flame for 3-4 minutes. No need to check for string consistency. Just thick sugar syrup will do.
  • Now add the roasted khova and mix well. Cook in medium flame stirring constantly.
  • The khova sugar mixture will thicken and begin to leave the sides of the pan. Add cardamom powder if needed and mix well.
  • Quickly transfer to a greased tray. Level with the back of a spoon. Spread roasted chopped nuts generously.
  • Draw lines to make slices with a sharp knife while the mixture is still warm. Make slices after the burfi reaches room temperature. Store in airtight container. If storing for more than a day, store in refrigerator.


1. Roast the khova in low flame.
2. The color of the burfi depends on the quality of khova used.
