  • Take besan/chickpeas and seive it to remove lumps. Dry roast it in a pan until u get a nice aroma. Keep it aside. This step is very important. Do not skip it.

  • Take sugar in the same pan and add water. Let the sugar dissolve and come to a boil. Check if it has reached one string consistency as in the picture below.

  • Add the dry roasted besan and chocolate horlicks. Mix quickly and continuously so that there are no lumps. Add ghee in intervals and keep mixing. Keep the flame in low-medium always.

  • It will get frothy, thick and start leaving the sides of the pan. This is the correct stage. Transfer it to a greased tray. Garnish with crushed badam and press gently. Let it cool a bit. Make slices while it is still warm.

Horlicks Burfi My Magic Pan



  1. Roasting the chickpea flour until u get a nice aroma is very important. Do not skip it. Else the burfi will have a raw smell.
  2. I have used Chocolate Horlicks. U can use Bournvita, boost or even milo. If u do not like chocolate flavour use plain Horlicks.
  3. The burfi will be melt in the mouth if switched off at the right consistency. If u overcook it will get hard.
  4. Garnishing with nuts is totally optional.
