Pumpkin Seeds Burfi

I include a lot of Pumpkin seeds in my diet as they are high in nutrition and tasty too.They are also an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C. In addition the seeds are also rich in zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron.

Today I tried making some burfies out of them and loved them….


Pumpkin seeds -1 cup

Mawa- 1 cup

Sugar – 1/2 cup

Mixed Nuts chopped – handful

Cardamom powder 1/2 spoon

Liquid Ghee – 3 to 4 spoons.


Roast the pumpkin seeds and dry grind them to fine powder.

Now in a pan heat ghee and roast the nuts and keep aside.

In the same pan add Mawa and cook over low heat until it leaves the sides of the pan and becomes lumpy.

Now add the pumpkin powder, cardamom powder and the nuts and mix well.

Now in another pan make a sugar syrup of one thread consistency and slowly pour over the Mawa pumpkin Seeds mixture.

Keep mixing until it thickens and leaves the ends of the pan and forms a lump.

Transfer it to a plate which has been greased with ghee.

Flatten and spread the mixture evenly with ghee smeared spatula or a turner.

With a knife make cuts and allow it to cool for about an hour, after which they can be enjoyed.
