Method

15 mins
 
Rub the Klim into the Nestle cream.
Allow to rest preferably overnight.
In the morning break up any visible lumps by blitzing batches of the powder in a food processor.
Sift (twice for a smoother burfee)
Dissolve the milk, butter, icing sugar, granulated sugar.
Bring to a boil for about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the next 2 tins of cream
Re-boil for another 3-4 minutes or until it draws a small thread on the back of a spoon.
DONT OVER COOK THE SYRUP.
Stir the syrup into the Klim with a wooden spoon until you get a thick fudge like consistency.
Flavour with the rose essence and elachi.
Immediately mould into desired shapes or pat into a square dish.
This must be done quickly because the burfee sets very quickly.
Decorate as desired.
Store in a cool dry place until ready to serve.

For pista burfee:
Add ½ cup ground pistachio nuts.
Tint lightly with green gel colouring.
