What you need


1 1/2 cups NESTLÉ® EVERYDAY® full cream milk powder
150 ml heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Butter, Clarified butter (ghee)
1 teaspoon Spices, nutmeg, ground
1 can NESTLÉ® full cream sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup NESTLÉ® 1927 82% Bitter Chocolate dark chocolate
1/2 cup Nuts, pistachio nuts, raw

How to prepare


1 Mix the milk and the cream

Mix the milk powder and cream in a bowl until it forms a thick and crumbly paste.

2 Toast the nuts

Heat the butter or ghee over a low heat for a couple of minutes, stir in the nutmeg and pistachio and toast for a few minutes.

3 Add the mixture

Add the cream mixture and the condensed milk; the mixture will be solid to start with and will soften as you continue to heat it. Keep stirring until the mixture starts to come away from the sides.

Don't cook the mixture for too long to avoid making it chewy.

4 Pour the mixture into a tray

Pour into a non-stick tray and spread to a 2cm thickness. Spread over the melted chocolate and decorate with gold or silver leaf. Allow to cool and then cut into square shapes.

5 Let the burfi mixture cool

For best results allow the mixture to cool for an hour before cutting it into squares. This is a necessary step, so if you are in a hurry, it's totally within the rules to put it into the fridge for 30 mins.
