This delicate burfi is called 7 cup burfi , because, totally 7 cups of ingredients are used in this. We can call it 7 Measure burfi too......because, we can measure the ingredients in a cup, tumbler, dabara, or a ladle , whichever suits us.

Grated coconut and carrots taken in a blender jar...and water, please!

Non stick pan heated, 1 tsp ghee added, and 1 cup besan added

and roasted on slow flames till nice aroma comes out , may be for 5 minutes

Pulsed carrot-coconut mixture added now

and mixed well

I switched off the stove now, and added ghee, sugar, cardamom powder, saffron and milk, switched it on now, and now our duty is to stir non stop, with lot of Shraddha and Saburi...perseverance and patience...

Mixture will be like this, there will be small lumps, don't worry, as you keep on stirring, it will become okay

Various stages given below, mixture slowly thickening

Nearing final stages. When it becomes frothy around corners, and mixture starts leaving sides of the pan....

pour it immediately to a well greased plate or tray

Flatten it nicely with a greased flat  bottom

After 5 minutes, it sets , now cut into square, rectangle or diamond shape..whatever you want

See! how beautifully it has come out!!
