Method

mix well making sure everything is combined well.stir continuously keeping the flame on low and no lumps formed.also stir till the sugar dissolves.

now keep stirring keeping the flame on low till milk thickens and add saffron thread .furthermore, the milk forms dough after stirring for 10 minutes.do not over cook, as the burfi turns chewy.

now the dough separates from the pan.add in screw pine essence and combine well.Turn off Flame.

transfer the prepared dough into greased plate lined with baking paper.set well forming a block.now top with few chopped almonds and pistachios and press slightly.

allow to set for 2 hours, or till it sets completely.now unmould and cut into pieces square or diamond or rectangle of your choice finally, serve milk powder burfi or store in airtight container.

Notes:-

firstly, prepare the burfi on low – medium flame, else the milk powder burns.top the burfi with dry fruits of our choice like Cashew Nuts to make it more attractive or you can skip it.

If you like plain burfi then don’t add saffron just add 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder,instead of screw pine essence you can add rose essence or don’t add any essence ,you can Skip it .
