After debating much on what sweets to make, apart from the traditional ones, I thought these chocolate sweets are the easiest and not to mention the most quickest to disappear. Imagine I made this the night before yesterday, hoping I can keep some for my nephew and niece who were coming today. And nothing was left. I even got some for my colleagues, who couldn't believe that this burfi was so easy to make and it was unbelievable delicious.
The entire time to make this was just about 10 mins. The actual cooking of the burfi is only 3 -4 mins, that too you got to be stirring along. Infact because I had to click a picture, I left it to Konda to stir and it almost set. So I had to add some more of condensed milk to get it loose. After transferring to the tray, all you need is some 30 mins time or if you are in a hurry, put it into the freezer for a quick fix. Since it was pretty late when I had made this, I cut into pieces the next day morning. So unless you plan to do the same, you can forget this for overnight. Else this needs about 30 -40 mins cooling time.
We made kaja last night and couldn't plan anything else. Apart from this, I had also planned on making some Ribbon Pakodas, as my sil made murukkus. Our relatives came this morning and the breakfast was the regular Idli, Meddu Vada
and Coconut Chutney
. Nothing to beat a traditional breakfast
