According to history on this day Lord Rama had killed the demon king of Lanka, Ravan in order to save the earth from the bad activities. On this day Lord Ram reached Ayodhya along with Sita and Lakshman. They reached at night and that was a  new moon day,  so the villagers of Ayodhya welcomed Ram, Lakshman and Sita by decorating and illuminating their village with diyas.

Pre preparation starts for this festival almost one month before. Everyone starts making arrangement one month before Diwali, new cloths are purchased, houses are cleaned and decorated with lights, flowers etc. people also purchase new things which are believed to bring Goddess Laxmi to their home. People also call their near and dears ones and they exchange gift, sweets and greetings among them. This is a festival of being together too. Thus this festival creates a sense of oneness among people.

For us, without sweets no festival can be celebrated and this year I had decided not to make any sweet but where  indulge in fun and frolic on the day of deewali, so how sweets can be skipped. I am also repeating few sweet dishes like kajoo katli, mysore pak, milk powder peda, whole wheat oat malpua , boondi ladooes, I made last year . This year I am only adding 7 cups burfi to my list. 7 cups which stands for equal part of besan, coconut, milk, kajoo powder and 3 part of sugar. If everything included it became 7 cups. So let’s start it.

  • Here are few tips to check the mass is done or not.
  • Take out a little burfi mixture to  a small plate , cool a bit and try to make  a ball.
  • If  the mixture form  a ball then it is ready to be removed from Gas.
  • Alternatively you can notice a white layer forming on the mass.
  • I didn’t cut the burfi before it settle so later giving shape to them was a tricky task for me.
  • So better put a cut mark while the burfi is still warm.
