Sesame Burfi Cooking:

Step 1: prepare the sesame seeds.

Pour the desired amount of sesame on the spread newspaper and sort it out, removing different rubbish. Then we transfer the seeds to a deep plate and proceed to the next step.

Step 2: prepare the oil.

Remove the packaging from the butter, put it on a cutting board and cut into cubes. Then put them in a pan set on medium heat and melt to a liquid consistency, periodically stirring with a kitchen spatula.

Step 3: Cook the Burfi.

When the oil begins to boil and simmer, reduce the temperature of the fire to a small level. After that, put sesame seeds in a pan and fry them until golden or light brown in color, stirring intensively.
As soon as the sesame changes color, remove it from the stove and cool to room temperature. Then, using a fine mesh sieve, sift the milk powder and powdered sugar into the resulting mixture.

We mix all the products to a homogeneous consistency and shift the almost finished burfi into any shape. Its size and the material of which it is made depends on your desire. In my case, this is a large rectangular flat dish of medium depth. Tighten it with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for 30 - 60 minutes or until the dessert hardens completely.

Step 4: serve the sesame burfi.

Sesame burfi is served chilled. After insisting, it is cut into diamonds, squares or stripes. Then spread on a dessert plate and serve along with hot drinks: tea, coffee, cocoa or warm milk. The taste of this sweetness resembles friable halva with a pleasant milky sesame aroma, everyone will like such a meal. Enjoy it!
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Burfi quickly melts, so you should keep it in the refrigerator;

- sometimes a couple of tablespoons of carob, a cocoa substitute, is added to the sesame mixture. Basically it is put in order to make the burfi sweeter and take on a rich chocolate brown color;

- Very often, cinnamon and vanilla sugar are added to the sesame mixture to taste, which is ground into powder using a coffee grinder before use.
