1 cup besan, 1 cup fresh coconut, 1 cup milk, 1 cup ghee, 1 cup oil and 2 cups of sugar.


Kadai and spatula.

Step By Step Method

  • Grease a plate and keep aside. Add all the ingredients ie. besan ,grated coconut ,sugar,ghee,oil and milk . Mix well so that no lumps are formed . Once everything is mixed well , place the kadai on flame. Keep the flame on medium and keep stirring the mixture continuously . You will observe that once the mixture gets heated , it will start becoming thin . As you continue stirring , you will notice that the mixture is getting thicker , darker and bubbles are forming.Continue the stirring process so that that mixture doesn't stick to the bottom and gets burned . Once the mixture starts leaving the surface and becomes a single mass and its done. You will see that it has a porus texture now. A good 7 cup burfi is determined from this. Transfer to the greased plate . Tap the tray and using a spatula spread it evenly to get desired thickness. Smoothen the surface using the base of a greased cup. When still warm, make markings of desired shape and size. Seven Cup is ready to serve now.
