A very Happy New Year to all!
Wishing you all, the happiness and blessings in 2016.
New year is there and we are almost in the last week of January. I know, time really flies! I still remember going to my Nani’s home with my mother during my vacations. I used to love all the fun and attention I get there but I was more excited to get a box of my favorite sweet freshly made by my Nani. Simple, really delicious, with a hue of sexy brown color and garnished with dried coconut flakes, my favorite Aate Ki Burfi. It has become so much part of me that my visit to my nani’s home is incomplete without it. I don”t want to publish my age around here but still after so many years its taste and aroma is still fresh in my palate and soul.
While browsing around I saw a recipe on a YouTube channel of my favorite blogger Nishamadhulika, Aata til Burfi. It refreshed the memory of my childhood and I tried the recipe with little tweaks here and there suited to our taste and voila! Perfect Sweet for my palate!
- ½ cup safed Til (Sesame Seeds)
- 1 cup Aata (Whole Wheat Flour)
- ½ cup Khoya, grated and roasted
- 3 tbsp. Ghee
- 1½ cups Sugar
