Microwave Cooking--- Yummy Double Layered Chocolate Burfi!!



When I saw THE REPOST EVENT hosted by Jaya Wagle, I went back to my older posts and saw that my few initial posts, looks orphaned and unattended to. And This Yummy Chocolate Burfi certainly needs better attention. :)
Today I have some Friends coming over for dinner, and these friends really wanted to taste chocolate burfi made by me. So I made this burfi again today and took better pictures.  
I think my older one got neglected coz of poor quality pictures as when I initially started blogging, I used to just take pictures from my camera phone ( This was my older post on this Burfi). As my found myself getting more interested in blogging, I started taking proper and better pictures from my Camera.
So here I am reposting...The Microwave Chocolate Burfi... (Printable View of Recipe)
When you serve this Awesome Chocolate Burfi to your guests, they will think you have worked very hard and spent hours making it but actually the overall cooking time is 10 minutes!! But hey, no one needs to know the truth!
Serve this super easy and yummy chocolate burfi and get all the appreciation :)
Ingredients:
5 cups (40 oz)-Instant Dry Milk (Milk Powder)
1 pint / 473 ml- Heavy Whipping Cream

4. Repeat step 3 for about 6-8 minutes. Make sure you take it out after every minute and mix it well.
5. Mine cooked for 6 minutes. Some microwave takes upto 8 minutes.

Hi this burfi i made but it came like very soft and its stick in hands .Taste is good nut its melting and its not hard like normal burfi.Why happened like that.

Vaishali Sharma said...

Hi there...

M not sure why it happened! Probably the mixture wasnt cooked till the right point. Coz Mine came out perfectly well..... Try cooking it for 1 extra minute or use just a little less condensed milk than mentioned....it shud help!

I don't like the brand of whipping cream sold in Mauritius...Instead of using Heavy Whipping Cream and cooking semi-sweet chocolate...Can I make 2 layered burfi in this way as mentioned below??

Ingredients for the vanilla layer:
3 cups whole & full-fat milk powder
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

Ingredients for the cocoa layer:
3 cups whole & full-fat milk powder
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 ½ tsp unsweetened cocoa powder


Method:
1. For the vanilla layer combine the vanilla extract with the condensed milk. In a microwave-proof mix the condensed milk with the milk powder and microwave on high power for one minute at a time for four minutes. Remove from the microwave in between these one minute intervals and stir.

2. Grease a 6X8 metal tray or thali with little of clarified butter.

3. Press the vanilla layer into the metal tray with the back of a spoon, making sure it’s even all over. Set aside and allow to cool.

4. For the cocoa layer combine the milk powder, condensed milk and cocoa powder in a microwave-proof dish. Repeat the microwave process as in step one, but for three minutes this time. Stir at one minute intervals so it doesn’t burn.

5. Place the cocoa mixture on top of the vanilla layer and press in tightly and evenly. Set aside and allow to cool. When the burfi has set, cut it into pieces with a sharp knife.


Is this fictional recipe of mine correct? Is the proportion/quantity of each ingredient right?? Should I try this recipe as typed by me above? Please help me...Divali season is near...Please help me how to make burfi using two main ingredients that is, full-fat milk powder and full-fat condensed milk...

Hello there:
Yes, this looks fine. It should make nice burfi. Condensed milk can definitely be substituted for Heavy Cream and Sugar.
