Milk powder burfi is a very burfi to make with very few ingredients and in just 10 minutes. It would yield the same taste as that of mawa burfi.

Very first time when I made this burfi it didn’t turn out good. The taste was good but was very chewy and sticky. I tried again and still the same result. Then I asked my muma what might be its reason. She suggested that it might be due the high amount of sugar in it. And then when I thoroughly read the ingredients I figured out I was using the milk powder which already had sugar in it.

Then finally I tried with the unsweetened milk powder and I got the result with flying colors. The burfi was so delicious and mouth melting.

So the very important point to remember while making this milk powder burfi is to use unsweetened milk powder.

Anyhow you will get a better idea when you watch its recipe video. The other tips for making this barfi are mentioned in the tips section after the method.


2 cups Milk Powder (unsweetened)

¼ cup Ghee (clarified butter)

½ cup Milk

½ cup Sugar powdered

1 tsp Cardamom powder


Grease a dish with some ghee and line it with butter paper and keep it aside. 

So that we just have to lift up the butter paper and the burfi would come out of the tray.
