Chocolate burfi or fudge.
Have you seen ‘Bareilly ki burfi’ movie? I didn’t. But read too much about it in local newspapers. All the famous sweet shops of Bareilly have some stories about their burfi. Some stories are about Priyanka Chopra, how she loves the particular burfi of a particular shop etc.
Read the story in short of this film in internet. Film is good but not burfi its all about a novel 😀
Copy pasting the story for you.
Amongst the cluster of homes in Bareilly, India resides the amusing Mishra family. The only ‘life loving’ daughter of theirs – Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) works at the electricity board, is a casual smoker, watches English movies and loves breakdance. Bitti’s free spiritedness does not translate in finding a suitable groom and she resigns to being a misfit in this small-town – Bareilly. The complexities of getting married and feeling pressured, impulsive Bitty decides to run away from home. At the railway book stall, she stumbles upon a novel called ‘Bareily Ki Barfi’. Surprisingly the female protagonist of the novel reads exactly like her.
Now tell me where is the burfi? 😂
Leave it. Here is a delicious burfi recipe for you direct from Bareilly 😊
You don’t need much ingredients to make it. You need only khoya/mawa or dried milk, milk powder, sugar, vanilla essence and dark chocolate. Easy isn’t it 😊
Khoya or mawa – 1 cup tightly packed, crumbled
Grated dark chocolate – 1/3 cup
Milk powder – 1/4 cup
Sugar – 4 tablespoon or to taste
Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon
Ghee/clarified butter or butter for greasing
Grated white chocolate and pistachio to garnish
Grease a plate with ghee or butter and keep aside.
I have used homemade khoya/mawa or dried milk. Get the recipe to make khoya or dried milk here.
Mix crumbled khoya/mawa or dried milk, milk powder and sugar.
Heat the mixture in a nonstick or heavy bottom pan. Cook on low heat, stirring continuously.
Cook until the mixture leaves the sides and becomes a dough like consistency. Taste the sweetness and adjust if require.
Add grated dark chocolate and mix well. Remove from heat.
Add vanilla essence. Mix well.
Set the mixture on the greased plate.
Sprinkle grated white chocolate and pistachio over it. You can sprinkle any dry fruits of your choice if you don’t have white chocolate.
Let it cool down. Cut with a knife in your desired shape.
Serve immediately or keep in refrigerator for later.
You can keep it in refrigerator for 3 – 4 days.
Enjoy the delightful taste of this chocolate burfi or fudge.
