Khoye ki burfi is flaky and sweet in taste and texture, respectively. It is made of two basic ingredients – sugar and mawa. Make sure to use only fresh homemade khoya to give the burfi its authentic taste. Also, if you are in a hurry, use pre-made or readymade ‘bura’ or caramelized sugar to reduce the cooking time.
