Ricotta Cheese Burfi

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 35 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a deep pan.
  2. Add ricotta cheese, stirring until smooth, for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add condensed milk.
  4. Turn heat to LOW, heat the entire mixture for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add almonds and/or pistachios. (I added some coconut chopped super-fine with pistachios).
  6. EITHER: pour mixture into a square pan, let set in fridge for 4 hours, cut into squares.
  7. OR: Let cool in fridge, serve ice-cream sized scoop, garnished with whole pistachio or almond.
