Seven cups burfi

Sweets are a must during festive time. Diwali is all about crackers, sweets and muruku ( chakli). We prepare our traditional sweets and savoury for diwali and distribute them to our relatives and friends . Sweets are made with home made ghee so it smells heavenly and tempt us to have them more while preparing it . Sweets taste delicious when had hot from pan. I love tasting sweets when hot.

This is everybodies favourite sweet in our home. I usually make this burfi with brown sugar. It just melts in mouth . Do try it and enjoy it with your family and friends!
