Besan Mawa Burfi | Burfi Recipes | Diwali Sweets Recipes

Besan Mawa Burfi or besan burfi is one of the popular burfi in and suits all festival, celebration, occasions etc. Besan burfi is made in few way mostly using sugar syrup and lot more ghee but here I have used easier way and used mawa (khoya), condensed milk which is very easy to prepare and taste creamy, delicious. If you have little of khoya with you then you can make this burfi in no time and specially now to holi.

If you use sweetened khoya or mawa then you can skip sugar and use less of condensed milk to suit taste too. Mawa makes this burfi smooth and add texture to make it more delicious making it perfect for any festival or occasion.


If you don't have mawa with you then you can skip that and use of the ingredients and procedure same as listed, it taste delicious this way too. Or instead of burfi roll these into ladoo if prepared, now isn't that wonderful to have so many options with a recipe?


Since Holi is around the corner I am sharing these easy and quick sweet recipes which you can try during holi and enjoy the festive to fullest.
