Recipe Cooked, Photographed and Written by Praveena

Prep time:5 mins   Cooking Time:20 mins   Cuisine:Indian

Burfi / Fudge are easily referred to as a square shaped sweet bites. They are easy to serve, to handle and look quite appealing as well. This is the first time I made this combination of Oats & Almonds burfi / fudge, but as you see in the below pics, they turned absolutely outstanding in taste too.

These are Vegan + Glutenfree, and the usage of jaggery gave a variation in taste and aroma as well. Made a batch of these for the coming Deepavali/Diwali festival, next week. My three kids are eagerly waiting for this ‘Festival of lights’ & ‘sparklers’ especially.
