The Making of "Burfi"...

This was my first chaturthi celebration after marriage and I was at my in laws place for the same. There were variety of Mithai's flowing in the house from friends and relatives. I tasted most of the mithai, but still could not find,my favourite, chocolate burfi on the platter.

Its true, cravings can be really crazy. So I decided to try out my own version of chocolate Burfi. And I guess this was the right time to show off my culinary talent to my In laws and to be in good notion with them.

I  tried the recipe before so i was bit confident in making it...and my recipes goes like....
