Ricotta Cheese Burfi

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MrsMM

Burfi is a traditional indian sweet, which is made from many things and can be compared to the shape/consistency of fudge. This is a ricotta cheese version that is SO good. Sweet, great texture. You can either cut into pieces, or, eat with a spoon from a bowl. Preparation time does NOT include refrigeration time.
