The temperature is dropping, days are shortening and we are in the season of sweets and snacks cooking for the festival because after all it’s food that makes us feel it’s FESTIVAL. I had no pre-plans as such to make these awesome two layer chocolate burfi, but it happened just like that. It’s good that it happened.
Last weekend morning, I called up my uncle who is a cook professionally and when it comes to sweets he has matured perfection. Over the phone, he could guide me each aspect of the recipe right from the quantity of ingredients, the method and even troubleshooting. After the conversation it was a clear cut picture in front of me. So I headed to action right away.
Luscious plain flour layer coated over by a caramely chocolate has absolutely rocked my world in the best possible way. Basically it’s maida burfi in two layers, cocoa powder is included to get that fancy look of chocolate on top.The key is to get the sugar syrup consistency like a single thread otherwise it may turn too hard or too soft to cut. To ensure perfection I would advice you to dissolve sugar completely in water first and then proceed to cook the syrup till the right consistency.
Two layer chocolate burfi can last more than a week and you can make them in advance to store in containers. When you share these delicacies on the Diwali day, your friends will ask ” You made these ??” with raised eye brows. And it’s your turn to feel proud with that glow on your face.
