Santra(Orange) Burfi-Nagpur Special

Amongst all the citrus flavour, orange flavour is the most mouth watering! And belonging to the city of oranges, how can the recipe of orange burfi be left behind in my blog? Here's it for all the sweet lovers.

Peeled and Grated Lauki (bottle gourd)- 2 cups
Thick Orange pulp -1 cup (or 2 peeled oranges)
Zest of 1 orange
Ghee - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Condensed milk - 1 1/2 cups
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Chopped dry fruits - 1/2 cup

1. Heat ghee in a pan.
2. Fry grated lauki (bottle gourd) in the ghee till it becomes tender.
3. Now add the peeled oranges, orange zest and sugar.
4. Keep stirring on medium heat till the mixture thickens.
5. Now add the condensed milk and cardamon powder.
6. Keep stirring till the mixture becomes thick enough to be flattened into burfi.
7. Take it off heat and pour on a buttered flat surface. Garnish with chopped dry fruits
8. Let it cool and cut into square/diamond shape. Orange burfi is ready to be relished!
Can be refrigerated for 2-3 days.

Burfi looks mouth watering...never tasted it before...thought of trying it for u add sweetened condensed milk and sugar will it be too sweet or is that much sweet needed for this recipe. Thanks
