7 Cup Burfi/Seven Cup Burfi – Easy Diwali Sweet/Sweet for Special Occasions or Neivedhyam

Hello Friends,

Today, I am going to share a very easy, extremely tasty 7 Cup Burfi which I made for this Diwali. The name 7 Cup Burfi is just an easy way to remember, that all ingredients are each one cup except sugar alone being 3 cups. But I feel 3 cups of sugar is way too sweet, so I have used only 2 ½ cups, sometimes I add only 2 cups. Though I have made this several times, I was unable to share it with you all, so this time I made sure I click some pictures and share it with you all. It is one such recipe, that even the beginners can try because it does not involve in making the single string sugar syrup etc.  Any way friends, do try out this delectable, tempting and mouthwatering 7 cup burfi and post your comments here. Meanwhile, do check out other interesting Diwali Sweets andDiwali Snacks here and enjoy. Have a wonderful and safe Diwali.

All the goodness of yogurt/thayir, protein from urad dal, added vegetables makes this a delicious evening snack. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here and other starters/Appetizers/Evening Snacks here

Sakkarai Pongal/Sweet Pongal with jaggery is an authentic and traditional dish prepared on special pooja days and occasions for neivedhyam. Usually sakkarai pongal is prepared in “vengala paanai” [bronze pot] or in a mud pot, but here I used a regular heavy bottomed vessel. Sakkarai Pongal is made with rice, dal, jaggery , milk and ghee on Pongal – Harvest festival of Tamil Nadu and offered to Sungod. Today being Puratasi [Tamil Month] Saturday, I made this special sakarai pongal for Lord Venkateshwara. Puratasi month is very important for Tamilians because it is believed that lord Venkateshwara appeared on the Earth in this month. All the Saturdays of puratassi month fasting is observed and special prayers are performed. Sometimes fasting is carried out throughout the month also.
