Jamun Burfi

This recipe is my mother's. 'Jamun' burfi gets its name from the ready made Gulab Jamun mix powder, which is being used along with other ingredients to make this awesome sweet dish. Just when, I've been having a bunch people hopping into our home to keep our spirits high, this winter, I asked Amma, what sweet may be prepared. Thats when she sprung up with recipe which calls for jamun mix...I had half a packet left in the fridge, which I had left untouched for few days now. Thought that this was the best way to surprise everybody instead of the same good old jamun!

Instant Jamun Mix- 1 cup (I'm using MTR)
Milk- 1 cup
Ghee- 1 cup
Sugar- 2 cups
Cashew nuts and Almonds- Few
Cardamom powder- A pinch

In a heavy bottomed vessel, add half the quantity of ghee, milk, sugar and the jamun mix. Mix all the ingredients well so that there are no lumps at all. Now, on medium heat, bring this mixture to a boil and continue stirring it till it attains a thick consistency. The color of the mixture will turn roasted brown. Add the remaining half of the Ghee and mix well. Add thin slices of cashew nuts and almonds to it. Add the cardamom powder too. The mixture will leave the sides of the vessel. Transfer it onto a greased plate. You may run the knife on it when it has cooled for about 10 minutes. Absolutely delicious burfi is ready to be served!
