      You know, Anu, I feel its really "injustice" to give just 5 stars to this recipe. If I were a fairy, I would use my magic wand and give this recipe infinite stars. What an addictive recipe this is. I swear, I am no-good when it comes to making burfi, but, this one's come out SO GOOD, it looks as though its bought readymade! My Goodness, I can't wait to share it with everyone tomorrow morning! The preparation time, cooking time and number of servings, everything is PERFECT! These are so addictive! I scraped the pan clean and licked my fingers clean on the crumbs. What a delectible treat these will make in the coming winter months! I promise you, I will break my coming Friday fast, with this recipe of yours and pray to God to make all your dreams come true. I'd like to mention that I used 2 tbsps. of melted ghee for this. Another small thing that was missed in the recipe which could be handy for those who don't make burfis' regularly - you have to peel the almonds and only after peeling them, you have to grind them. I put them in water and heated them for a few minutes. This made the skin soft and easy to peel off! Anu, thanks COUNTLESS TIMES for posting this recipe. Why didn't I try this earlier?!

      These are delicious and addicting, Anu! Thanks to Charishma's comments, I just had to try this and am so glad I did! I used only 1/2 C sugar, and margarine since I had no real butter on hand. Seems I had to cook it for a pretty long time. Maybe because of my substitutions or because I didn't grind the almonds fine enough. No matter! It finally thickened and everyone here is loving it. Nice and nutty. Thanks for a great treat!!!

      I love these! I have made it both with regular butter and with ghee, and either one works for me. I love almond flavored sweets, so these are right up my alley. Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. Very sweet, so they go well with coffee or tea.
