DATE ‘N’ SEMOLINA BURFI


This sweet is made with semolina,nuts,coconut,

desiccated coconut,dates,mawa or milk powder

and sugar.As the addition of dates contribute to

the sweetness,sugar can be reduced.Using of

fresh grated coconut is an option.

A little sugar has to be caramelised to add to

the colour if preferred.I added 2-3 tbsp of

brown sugar for the colour .This can be made

with powdered jaggery too.
