7 cups burfi or 7 cup cake is an easy Diwali sweet recipe that even beginners in cooking can make. In this post, we will learn how to make this easy sweet with step by step pictures and full video. This has been my long time wish to try this easy sweet and asking my friends if they make. My MIL told this recipe luckily, 2 days back that she saw this in Jaya TV in cookery show by Mrs.Revathy Shanmugam mam. I know she is one of the very few whose recipes are genuine and turn out perfect too. I know this sweet is very famous as it is easy to make and the recipe is also very simple to remember. But we have never made this at our home and this is the first time I am making and tasting too. While my MIL told the recipe during our Skype call, I am not sure if I noted down wrongly or what, but somehow I wrote the sugar ratio wrongly. And followed blindly the recipe, took video. But the result was a delicious halwa, not burfi. It was very flavourful and delicious. Only that instead burfi, it was halwa.
Then when I saw the recipe, the sugar quantity was too less for a burfi. So I added more and got the burfi right. So let’s learn how to make 7 cups burfi! And now I know the name 7 cups is just for holding the 7 ingredients, not all the ingredient in same quantity.
