Khoa Burfi/ Dodha burfi

Mangalore is decked up with lightings for the Navaratri festival and is looking as beautiful as a bride. Just like Mumbai is popular for Ganesh chaturthi , Bengal for its Durga puja,Mangalore is famous for Dasara. One can hear the beats of the tiger dance all over. To celebrate the occasion I’m sharing a recipe of a sweet called Dodha burfi which is very easy to prepare and tasty. Dodha burfi is a popular Punjabi sweet which is a kind of a fudge. Diwali is also around the corner and this will make a great recipe to celebrate the festivals. The recipe link was passed to me by Santoshi Nayak.
