It all started on a nice winter day when I had a chance to dig into the ethnic food scene of  London. After exploring an array of stalls displaying mouth watering  food. We stopped to order from a Pakistani food stall. The food was fine but my main point of interest was the dessert. While scrolling down the menu list my eyes stopped at a particularly interesting flavor of burfi/barfi.

It was mango burfi! How ignorant of me I had never heard or tasted mango barfi before. I was super excited because mango is my favorite fruit and I never seem to have enough of it. So the mango burfi was served to us and upon taking the first bite I was smitten by an overpowering taste of ghee and too much sugar. It was at that first bite that I thought I would make my very own homemade barfi.

On the way back home my mind was racing with different recipe ideas for burfi. Same evening I made my first batch. I made it with condensed milk and left it to set thinking that I will cut it into squares the following morning. Night passed while I was tossing and turning my head thinking how the burfi would come out, would the recipe be a success or a  failure.

Finally sleep overcame me and I closed my eyes. In the morning I woke up very excited thinking about the power packed day that lay ahead of me. I rushed straight into the kitchen after dealing with my morning rituals. I uncovered the burfi and was shocked to discover some crumbs here and there instead of the barfi itself.
As you might have guessed, some one had sneaked into the kitchen at night finishing off the entire batch leaving only a few crumbs. I had no option but to taste the crumbs because I have to taste the recipe before posting. I personally didn't like the texture very much so made another batch on the same day. This one was saved from the burfi thief by making additional precautions! Another long story!!!

The texture was nice and it seemed lighter on the palate as compared to the stodgy mango burfi that I had tasted in Manchester. It also tasted much better than the batch I had previously prepared. The mango imparts a nice flavor and fruity fragrance to the otherwise hum drum barfi that I had always eaten.
