Maida burfi recipe or maida tiranga burfi or tiranga burfi recipe with step by step photo recipe. yet another simple barfi recipe which is hugely popular in south india and is prepared mainly with the intention to share with family and friends for any family celebration. it is the most common sweet offered to the guests arrived for any family function. It is served with the combination of juicy desserts like besan laddo or motichurladoo and some banana chips or spiced cashew nuts.
The maida burfi recipe can be prepared in many colour, texture and thickness and softness. the most common one is the plain without any colour with hard and uneven texture. however, in this recipe, I have used 2 colours i.e orange and green and I have presented it with Indian flag colour. I wanted to share an easy and simple sweet recipe for this year’s independence day celebration with Indian flag as a theme. having said that, the food colouring is completely optional and can be ignored if you are uncomfortable with it.
while it is one of the easiest barfi recipes, yet I would like to share few tips and recommendations for maida burfi recipe. firstly, make sure to roast maida on low flame using ghee till it turns aromatic. also, make sure to stir the maida mixture till you get thick flowing consistency, further cooking may turn burfi hard and brittle. lastly, layering maida burfi is optional and can be prepared with a single colour.
