 Peanut Burfi

Peanut Burfi

Burfis are a common mithai or sweet made during festivals in India, just like kheers, halwas and laddus. Peanut Burfi probably might not be one of the common burfis made, but definitely will top the list among one of the most easiest burfis you can make. You can call it an Indian sweet fudge made of peanuts and jaggery. Peanut Burfi is a good alternative to Kaju Katli both cost-wise and health-wise. Peanuts are cheaper and are rich in nutrients and also gluten-free.

You can make a big batch of this barfi and store it in the refrigerator to enjoy them for a couple of days. This is an excellent and healthy option to gift your friends too. Since there is no refined sugar added to make these burfis, they can be enjoyed guilt-free.
