Makar Sankranti Special- Til Burfi


Happy Makar Sankranti to all of you!! Alike every year, this time also I made Makar Sankranti Special- Til Burfi. But since I had very less time to prepare it, I followed a very easy and straight forward method. And it came out perfect. Usually for til burfi, we have to make syrup first. But in today’s recipe, there is no syrup. Just mix sesame, sugar, ghee, and milk. That’s it. Your til burfi will be ready in no time. So let’s make it. For this recipe, I took 7 cup burfi recipe as the base and changed few ingredients and quantity. Til release it’s own oil. So, I reduced the amount of ghee and instead of besan and coconut I used  sesame.
