Boost Burfi

My son is very fuzzy with drinking milk and I keep trying a new health drink to make him drink milk.He didnt like boost ,and so I stopped giving him boost.The end result- a lot of boost left in the jar on my kitchen shelf,which kept me hunting for a delicious recipe that will help me to make use of the remaining boost.Finally I found a good recipe here and immediately I tried it and it came out well.Kids will love it when the boost is made into these delicious boost burfis and it is a must try.

Boost Burfi

Preparation time:25 mins
Makes nearly 12 pieces

Maida/All purpose flour-1/2 cup
Boost/any chocolate drink-1/4 cup
Ghee - a little less than 1/4 cup
Sugar-3/4 cup
Water -1/4 cup
Hot water-2 teaspoons


1.Roast the flour in a pan for 5 minutes and make sure it doesn't change color.

2.Add hot water to the boost and mix it to a fine paste with no lumps and keep it outside.

3.To the roasted flour add the ghee and roast it for another two and then remove it from flame and keep it in a bowl.

4.In the same pan add sugar and water and boil it to a one string consistency.That is when you take the  sugar syrup between your thumb and pointer finger and stretch it you should get one string.

5.Keep stirring in the mixture and on e it starts leaving the sides of the pan add the boost paste and stir it for another minute in low flame and then pour this mixture on a greased tray. 

6.Once it cools down cut in to small burfis.your yummy boost burfi is ready.If you are not able to cut into pieces and the mixture is still gooey then don't worry ,again transfer the contents in to the pan and keep stirring in low flame till it comes together .Then pour it into the tray and you will be able to cut into square pieces.

Boost Burfi

*The ghee quantity could be increased to 1/2 cup for a melt in burfi,as I found the burfis could have been a bit more melting type.You can add the additional 1/4 th cup of the ghee at regular intervals when stirring the flour and sugar syrup mixture.
*You can mix boost with hot milk also to make a fine paste instead of hot water.
*Throughout the process make sure the flame is low.
