My girls love burfi. Whenever we go to weddings or religious functions I seek out the penda and they seek out the burfi. They also love millionaire’s shortbread so we came up with this recipe that covers both.


  • 120 ml ghee
  • 240 ml full fat milk
  • 500 g


Grease and line your tin with greaseproof paper. Put the ghee in a pan and when it has just melted add the milk. Gently whisk together so they are well combined. Add the milk powder, set a timer for five minutes and stir, stir, stir and mash, mash, mash! This process cooks out the milk powder. Don’t worry if the ghee and milk solids separate; keep stirring and mashing for the full five minutes.
