While traversing the Indian subcontinent, you’ll come across variations of burfi that go by many names. This sweet, milk-based confection is named after the Persian word for “snow” or “ice.” At its most basic, burfi is just a solidified mixture of condensed milk, ghee (clarified butter), and sugar that gets sliced into small cubes or diamond-shaped pieces, akin to fudge. Also like fudge, burfi is sold in a number of flavors, ranging from chocolate to rosewater. In pista burfi, the addition of ground pistachios (which make up the “pista” part of the name) give the otherwise creamy-white treat a verdant glow.
