Rajgira burfi

Rajgira burfi, also known as Amaranth burfi, is a traditional Indian sweet made from Rajgira flour (Amaranth flour) that is typically served during religious fasting or vrat. It is made by cooking Rajgira flour, sugar and milk together until it forms a dough-like consistency, which is then shaped and cut into small squares.

Here is a simple recipe for Rajgira burfi:


  • 1 cup Rajgira flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)


  1. In a pan, roast the Rajgira flour over medium heat until it turns golden brown.
  2. Add ghee to the pan and mix well.
  3. Add milk and sugar and mix well.
  4. Cook the mixture over medium heat until it thickens and forms a dough-like consistency.
  5. Add the cardamom powder and chopped nuts and mix well.
  6. Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  7. Grease a tray or plate with ghee and spread the mixture evenly.
  8. Allow the mixture to cool completely, then cut into small squares.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Note: You can also add some more nuts like raisins, or dried coconut for added flavor and nutrition. Also, you can also add some more ghee to the mixture if it’s too dry.
