As most of them my family has a sweet tooth, but always the sugar minds me, as my hubby is diagnosed with Diabetics. I think to prepare sugar-free recipes, as a result the dish came out well, I have added almost all the dryfruits.
The Burfi was too good and with the loads of healthiness, most important and the highlight of this dish is its – “SUGAR-FREE”. Not only for diabetic people, even its good for kids because of the dry fruits, oats and dates. A heavenly dish for everyone. Give a try guys.
Let us move on to the recipe…
