Chocolate burfi recipe - two layered burfi recipe. The bottom layer is plain khoya barfi while the top layer is cocoa-flavored chocolate burfi.
Burfi is also spelled as barfi or burfee. There are many different varieties in the barfi. This chocolate barfi is made from khoya, sugar, milk and cocoa powder
Anything made with chocolate is my favorite. So I have incorporated the chocolate flavor in many Indian sweets like chocolate peda, chocolate modak, chocolate pistachio rolls. I am planning to make chocolate sandesh and will share the recipe here.
It is very easy to make. Also, it is very quick. Within 15 minutes, it is ready. Then you just need to let it set for a few hours before you cut them into pieces.
The taste and texture of this burfi are the same as the one you get from halwai (store-bought one). But the homemade one is sure more hygienic. I have made it organic, by using organic ingredients.
Raksha Bandhan is around the corner, so to celebrate this festival I have made it at home. You can make this on any festival or special occasions.
How to make Chocolate burfi recipe?
PREP: Grease the pan with ghee or butter. (I used 9x5 inches loaf pan and set the burfi only in half of the pan.)
1) Heat the mawa in a pan on medium heat.
2) It will look crumbly and starts to melt. we don’t want to cook the khoya. So don’t let it brown. So just melt.
3) Add sugar
4) also add milk.
5) Mix well and continue cooking.
6) Cook it till thickens. It will take about 4 minutes. Stir continuously. Don’t cook it for long otherwise, it will be chewy.
7) Take half of the mixture in the greased pan
8) and spread in a pan evenly.
9) Add cocoa powder in other half mixture in pan.
10) Mix well.
11) Spread on top of plain burfi layer.
12) Sprinkle chopped nuts and press it lightly so nuts will stick to burfis.
13) Let it cool completely and let the burfi set. If you are in hurry pop burfi tray in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
14) After it sets cut them into 9 squares using a sharp knife. Remove them gently from the pan.
- You can skip the addition of cocoa powder. And make the single-layered plain mawa burfi.
- Or mix the cocoa powder to the entire khoya mixture and make only chocolate burfi. No layers, just the chocolate barfi.
Storing the chocolate barfi:
- Store chocolate burfi in an airtight container in a single layer. If you want to stack them, place a parchment paper or butter paper between the layer of burfis, so they don’t stick together.
