Chocolate Doodh Burfi | Chocolate Milk Fudge: Indian Festival Sweets

Chocolate Doodh Burfi

Chocolate Doodh Burfi is one of the most popular burfi items around festival times in Delhi. When I came across this confection the first time I was quite frankly horrified by the idea. The very thought of combining creamy milk burfi with cocoa seemed strange!! But one bite and I was hooked. This delicious sweet is seldom found in the Mithai Shops we have around here. This year I was simply craving this burfi and so I decided to just go ahead and make it. All I can say is that there were no regrets and the family just loved it!!

Milk Chocolate Fudge

15 oz (1 tub) ricotta cheese
11/2 cups skimmed milk powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp ghee

Diwali Sweets Recipes

  1. Add the ghee to a pan, let it melt.
  2. Add the ricotta cheese and fry for 10 minutes on a medium low heat.
  3. Add the milk powder and the sugar continue frying until the mix begins to come together.
  4. Remove 1/3 of the mix into a separate pan. Add the cocoa powder and continue frying until the mixture begins to leave the sides of the pan.
  5. Add the cardamom powder in the remaining 2/3 of the ricotta mix and also fry till it leaves the sides of the pan.
  6. You will now have the two different flavours of the burfi ready.
  7. Grease a plate. Turn out the cardamom scented mix onto it. Spread evenly.
  8. Turn the chocolate mix onto this. Spread evenly to cover it.
  9. Let the burfi cool down completely and set.
  10. Cut into squares or diamonds as desired.

When refrigerated, the Burfi will keep for a week. Make sure you remove it from the refrigerator a couple of hours before eating. That way the Burfi will be soft, creamy, with a grainy feel - just the way its meant to be!

    1. Ricotta and Paneer are different but you could substitute very fresh soft home made paneer for ricotta in this recipe.

  4. Burfi looks so tempting and delightful sweet !!
