Making some traditional Indian sweets like gulab jamun or rasgulla can be sometimes tricky. But making any kind of burfi is very very EASY. As you can see this walnut burfi recipe is also one of the easy recipes.

Usually the burfis are made from mawa or khoya. But this is little different and no khoya is required. I got this recipe from my mom. She learned it from a Gujarati cookbook she own.

This can be ready in just 15-20 minutes. The toughest part is letting it cool down and set. yes this waiting time is the toughest one (at least for me)!!

Along with walnut flavor, this burfi has some coconut flavor from desiccated coconut. It also has very subtle chocolate flavor from the addition of cocoa powder. All the flavors complement well together.
