How to make this different Banana Burfi/Chocolate?

Banana Burfi recipe one has to be one of the quickest and easiest Indian sweet recipes (considering how difficult they are to make).

Like most houses a few people are guinea pigs to test out new dishes 🙂 and then if the dish is successful it is then made in a larger scale 🙂

This Banana recipe is an adaptation from a regional cookery show in Karnataka. The authors of the dish called it Banana Peda but this one is between a Peda and a Burfi. So for sake of simplicity we’re calling it Banana Burfi.

Banana Burfi recipe
This one is neither a Burfi nor a Halwa nor a Peda but it tastes very good!

The texture is between a soft Peda and a hard Burfi with a chewy feel something that that of an Eclairs chocolate if we had to over simplify it. The sweet sticks in your mouth and as it cools, it becomes harder. So it is advisable that it is eaten as soon as it is made.

This dessert goes well as an evening snack along with some Mangalore Bajji – Goli Baje and some hot tea.
