besan milk burfibesan milk cake recipe | besan milk burfi | besan barfi with milk powder with step by step photo and video recipe. barfi recipes have always been one of the popular indian sweets which are made with different types of nuts, flour or mixture of both. however, these barfi recipes have been adapted to other forms and cake based variation is the popular ones. one such easy and simple barfi cake variation is besan milk cake recipe known for its soft and creamy texture and layering.

i have posted the 2 popular recipes. i,e besan barfi and milk cake recipe, whereas this recipe is the combination of these 2 recipes. in other words, besan barfi recipe with more creaminess in it. adding milk powder makes it softer and lite compared to just the besan based sweets. however, the consistency of sugar syrup also matters to the softness of this cake barfi. i have used the 1 string consistency which should be more than sufficient for this recipe. you may stretch a little towards 2 string, but you have to be more careful as the burfi will turn hard. it may turn the sweet to solid and you may not be able to shape and cut it. if you see this video, i have also used the butter paper below the container, so that i can remove the sweet once it is set. it would be really easy if you follow the same pattern.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the creamy besan milk cake recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using fine or besan mixture used for ladoos. it has to be fresh and you would realize it when you start frying it. it should start releasing its aroma when you fry it with ghee. secondly, as an alternative to the sugar and sugar syrup, you can also use the jaggery or the jaggery syrup. however, you may not get the same colour as you would get with sugar syrup. lastly, if the barfi is still soft or chewy you can refrigerator it so that it becomes hard. the only reason, it may turn soft, is due to the sugar syrup consistency. one string is ideal if it is less than that it may turn soft and chewy.
