Dodha Burfi

Dodha Burfi or dodha is a very yummy sweet made from milk .It's like a milk fudge with cardamom and some nuts.Its a tedious job to keep stirring the milk occasionally until it thickens to 1/3 it's quantity .I have used mava ot Khoya instead to make it quick and easy .
I made a small batch as there were so many sweets already at home. You can double or triple the recipe to get a bigger batch as this just yielded ne some 8-10 pieces and it was over in a jiffy .

200 gms mava/khoya/mawa
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of cardamom powder
1/8 tsp  nutmeg powder
1/4 cup chopped almonds, cashews, pista
  • Heat a nonstick  pan  add Khoya
  • On low flame roast it well till it turns brown
  • Once brown keep aside
  • Make syrup in the same  pan.
  • Add sugar and 2 tbsp water in the pan
  • Boil till sugar dissolves completely
  • Boil for 3-4 minutes till this  syrup  reaches one string  consistency.
  • Add cardamom powder nutmeg powder  to the syrup and add the Khoya
  • Mix on low flame till it leaves sides.
  • Pour on greased plate 
  • Sprinkle nuts  and press it with a spatula so that it sticks.
  • Cut into squares while warm.
  • Let  it cool until set

I have also tried this using  2tbsp- 3tbsp leftover  sugar syrup from  gulab jamun .
