Milkpowder Barfi FAQ:
This means the burfi mixture is undercooked. Go ahead and cook until the mixture gets slightly thick and ghee oozes out. You can check by rolling a small portion . If it rolls easily and firm , we can set the burfi.
It means the barfi is over cooked. Cooking for a longer time gives a chewy barfi. The best tip to avoid this will be to cook on a very low flame so that the exact consistency is not missed. Also, use a sturdy heavy-bottomed pan. If you are a beginner in cooking go for a nonstick pan.
Barfi Stays good at room temperature for 2 days and then we can refrigerate and use. Since barfi is milk-based, Best to finish it asap.
But its stays good for a week in the fridge.

Milk powder is the main ingredient in Milk powder burfi.
For all Indian Mithais use Full fat or Full cream Milk. The fat from the milk is necessary for setting the barfi, So be sure about this part. Don't go for skimmed milk. The barfi might not set.
Use powdered sugar for a quick burfi, I used refined White sugar. We can definitely use Cane sugar, but I have not tried it yet. Will try and update the measurements soon.
Use good quality desi ghee for a flavourful barfi. In case you want to use butter, Cook till the butter melts and become a light golden color.
