  14. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.. I followed the recipe to the T and it came out delicious. But i found that when it was hot it was really soft, but when it started cooling down, it started becoming hard. Is that normal?

  15. I tried this today & it really filled my house with its wonderful aroma. I have started liking jowar flour & that's thnx to you. The taste is just out of the world .. I think it tastes like the whole cake is dunked in ghee but actually it's not. Wow amazing..
    One small problem I had & I know it should be my error in judging the readiness of jaggery. Till I plated it was fine but within minutes it turned hard as a rock .. Though I can somehow cut it , it is rock hard to eat. I will not waste this for sure as it tastes heavenly... I think according to me I might have heated the jaggery mixture for a very long time ... I waited till it turned like balls in water... I don't know if this was the reason for the rocky texture of the cake ..
    If you can possibly think where I went wrong I would really appreciate that
    & thanks for this wonderful , easy & quick sweet

    Thank you very much. I'm glad you liked it. If your burfi is to hard, the jaggery syrup might have been overcooked.
