Walnut Burfi in Microwave

I am back from US to Pune. It is always a luxury when you return back to India even if you are gone for a week. The heat, people, dirtiness, the ability to break rules....mmm..I love it. After coming back, as usual had loads of work that other than the traditional cooking, I just did not have time to experiment anything. But then I was feeling guilty that I was not updating my blog. So yesterday I made some Walnut Burfi (source: Tarla Dalal) but my version. It did not come out like a traditional burfi. It was chewy (like Rice Krispies).

So here we go with the recipe:


Walnuts - 1 cup
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Milk Powder - 3 tbsp
Milk - 3 tbsp
Ground Nutmeg - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tsp


In a microwave safe bowl, mix together the walnuts and ghee and microwave on High for 2 minutes, stirring once after 1 minute. In a bowl mix sugar, milk powder, milk and nutmeg. Add this to the ghee & walnuts. Mix well and microwave on High for 2 minutes. Remove and spread in a round plate and allow it to set for 20-30 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.

Walnut Burfi is ready and yummy!!!

Note: The number of minutes may vary by a minute or 2 depending upon the power of the microwave.
