Vegan almond burfi

I love everything from almond Kheer to almond burfi. I recently made almond burfi following
Indira's almond burfi recipe in her beautiful blog mahanandi. You should visit mahanandi blog if you like simple Indian food and amazing food pictures.

I used trader joe's turbinado raw cane sugar, since it is vegan. To get perfect burfi, you should get the softball consistency when you boil sugar and water. This is very important. Indira says to peel the almonds. I did not peel the almonds, so my burfi was light brown in color.

When my almost four year old kid ate the burfi, he said, "amma sweet is nice". He ate a couple of pieces, and was running towards the plate in which I had arranged the burfi. In the morning, my son wakes up and after a few minutes says, "amma, burfi was nice". The burfis were really so good. I had used just one cup of almonds to make the burfi. Next time I'm planning to make with two cups of almonds...

I don't know to link to blogs. To read the almond burfi recipe in Indira's blog, go to google, and type "almond burfi mahanandi". Read the recipe and make this delicious sweet when you are not in a hurry...
