Countdown to ‘Diwali‘ has begun. Diwali often referred to as the “festival of lights,” is one of the most important festivals of the year. It’s just 1 week away and for all of you who are still thinking what to make this festive season, then here is an easy Layered Pista Burfi recipe – just for you.
All across India and worldwide, people are preparing for Diwali. It’s my favorite time of year. Time for rangolis and diyas, sweets and treats, firecrackers and lights, parties and prayers and much more.
During this festive season, clay lamps filled with oil are lit to signify the triumph of good over evil. Fireworks are burned to drive away the evil spirits and decorative rangolis are made to welcome the deities.
It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year. Everyone is in the festive mood which is full of energy, happiness, and excitement!
Today’s recipe, layered pista burfi is a perfect fit for this occasion. It makes a lovely edible gift for your family and friends. Just wrap them in decorative paper boxes that you can find at your local craft store and share the love. Homemade treats add a sweet touch to this festival!
You will love this layered pista burfi because

For this recipe, you can either prepare mawa at home or use store bought mawa. Either way, it will taste equally delicious.

The base recipe is made with 3 simple ingredients – mawa, sugar, and ghee. Crushed eliachi or cardamom is added for extra flavor. Combine and cook all the 3 ingredients, stirring continuously until it forms a soft dough.
When done, pour this mix in a greased tray and level with a spoon. Prepare the top layer with same ingredients + crushed pistachios and green color. Cook the mix until well blended and spread this green layer on top of the mawa layer.
