Almond burfi is a dessert which has a delicate sweetness and goodness of the almond. This sweet is prepared by cooking the almonds on medium heat and other ingredients are added to it to make a delicious treat.
I tried making this burfi with condensed milk and it turned out as good as traditional khava recipe.The saffron gives it a regal taste and blends so well with the nutty burfi. Try this for a potluck, festival or a party and your guests will love this subtle sweet dish.
