About This Recipe
Burfi is a popular Indian sweet that is prepared with khoya/mawa, sugar, coconut, and dry fruits. Here, we are giving this traditional sweet twist by adding fresh mango puree.
You will find Burfi at every Indian Mithai store and a lot of variations of the same too, but I assure you this homemade Mango Burfi will beat all those sweets.
Cardamom Powder is also added in this Burfi, which gives it a nice flavor. Adding desiccated coconut is optional, but I will recommend not missing the coconut and it is actually my favorite part of this Burfi along with mangoes, as mangoes and coconut is a bomb combination and really complements each other.
Also, if the mangoes are sweet enough, you can adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste and preference.
Mango Puree – You can use any mangoes to make the puree for your Burfi. See that they are properly riped and sweet. You can even use canned puree.
Dry Fruits – I have used Almonds and Cashews, dry roasted them, powdered, and then used in the recipe. You can even add some crushed Pistachios for a nice bite in the Burfi.
Other Ingredients – Other than these, you will need sugar, milk powder, ghee, desiccated coconut, and cardamom powder. You can adjust the amount of sugar according to your tastes and preference.

You can use any Mangoes of your choice, but I prefer Alphonso Mangoes as they are juicy and sweet. You can even use the canned puree to make this burfi.
You can mix condensed milk in the Mango puree and then cook it in the pan. Reduce the amount of milk powder by half in this and also reduce the amount of sugar in the same as condensed milk is already sweet.
