Chocolate Burfi / Two Layered Burfi


by: Seena Koshy

Good Morning / Good Afternoon / Good Evening My dear friends, first of all wishing you and your family a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous New Year. May God fulfil all your wishes, give you good health, peace, prosperity and happiness all throughout your life.. Of all the festivals of India, Diwali is the most accepted one!! It is the festival of lights, crackers, mehendi, sweets for the Indians.. I always love to light and see those diyas, though I didn’t get an opportunity to do it myself. Let this Diwali break your ego and not crackers.. These words I am used to see on all social media during the time of Diwali!! It is a festival people celebrate irrespective of caste, creed or religion.. Ladies of all households begin to start preparations days ahead, what sweets to prepare, applying henna, etc., I remember my childhood days well, how we celebrated Diwali. We were in Chennai and the Diwali celebration starts one week prior to the Diwali date. Day and night we could hear the sounds of crackers, and atmosphere was filled with the same sound especially during the evenings and it goes on for whole nights.. I remember our court yards filled with the left overs of crackers and our maid found it difficult to clean the courtyards when she come home the next day morning!! My mom used to make all kinds of sweets of her knowledge to celebrate the event and shared those with our all neighbours. Another important ritual of Diwali is giving gifts as a token of love and affection to ones’ dear ones. I think people compete to give the best gifts.. Diwali divas are one of the gift items people exchange on these days.. Now a day’s people buy online gifts to send to their loved ones living far away. Also we can see these days that it is an occasion to please business customers and other contacts!! Quoting Neeraj Malik’s words here – it’s time to think and limit our celebration.. Thousands of birds, dogs and other animals die due to shock and fear during Diwali... The deafening sounds, especially when crackers are put into a container to produce an echoing effect is an assault on our senses... The fumes add to our already polluted atmosphere and go way beyond acceptable levels, harming our lungs and creating avoidable distress and disease... This Diwali the amount of money spent on crackers can be put to better use by treating children to a meal at an orphanage or taking gifts for residents of an old age home... The possibilities are immense... Neerja Malik Today I am presenting before you is chocolate burfi, a simple and easy recipe anyone can make to celebrate Diwali. My husband love to have anything with chocolate, whether it is cake, fudge, cookies, nuts, brownies, muffins or his favourite chocolate ice cream.. His list is endless.. I decided to add chocolate in this to make him happy.. ? When I was making this sweet burfi, the thought came to my mind was, it’s almost the same way I made Milk Peda too. Check out my sweet dish, Milk peda (add herf) which is a big hit. I am sure all kids love to have this. I made chocolate burfi in two layers. The bottom layer is plain and the top layer is chocolate flavoured. When tasted it, we got a feeling that it’s just like the store bought burfies.. You can make this homemade burfi sweet for any celebration.. You can check out my (Milk Peda / Dhoodh Peda) now, which became a super duper hit!! This is the first time I have tried with silver leaves!! Since I was not that experienced in how to place these silver leaves on food, it became a time consuming work. Now I am a bit confident in doing it and learned the tricks too.. I made Kaju burfi too for this Diwali to post on my blog and garnished it with silver leaves, but will post it later.
