Last week when I went for grocery shopping, I took my daughter along. You know kids…. As usual her demands started. One demand that is also of my interest is… Having pani puri (golgappa). There is a famous sweet shop in the market that along with the scrumptious sweets also makes very tasty pani puri. After enjoying pani puri, the next thing in the row was sweets (my sweets loving family). After buying two different types of sweets, my eyes caught a green colored Burfi. On enquiring, I came to know that it was Kiwi Burfi and I bought small amount of that Burfi also. This burfi has a unique taste – sweet with a tint of tanginess.
This week I’m making recipes using khoya as ingredient, so kiwi Burfi came to my mind. For making it, I decided to use kiwi crush that has been lying in my pantry for a long time and begging me to use it. So I started with my experiment make kiwi Burfi with no recipe in hand.
When I mixed kiwi crush with khoya and heated it, the mixture became of very thin consistency. I had some bread lying the fridge, used that also and kept on heating. Within few minutes the mixture thickened to a dough like consistency and my kiwi Burfi was ready. Though the taste was not same as I had tasted in the sweet shop but it was quite good in its own way. My biggest critic i.e. my son liked it.
