Mewa Burfi/Mixed Nuts Burfi/Meva Barfi

If you are bored of preparing badam halwa, kaju katli or else coconut burfi for the upcoming Diwali festival, check my today's post. Mewa burfi is prepared with a combination of different nuts and coconut flakes. Mewa means Mixed nuts in Hindi and not to get confused with Mawa or Khoya the popular dairy product used in making many delicious Indian sweets. I crossed this Ultimate Mewa burfi while googling for a different Diwali special sweets. And the best part of this burfi is you can use any sort of nuts you have on your hand. Ricotta cheese plays an important role to whisk up this sweet quickly. Obviously if you want to prepare this nuts burfi with unsweetened khoya, just go on. And trust me, this burfi is definitely an easy breezy sweet to prepare especially for festivals or for a special occasion.

Mixed Nuts Burfi, Mewa Halwa

The texture of this burfi will definitely tickle your sweet tooth, and this fudge like burfi tastes absolutely fabulous to serve, share and enjoy with your loved ones. Though i used cashews, almonds, walnuts,coconut flakes,pistachios along with ricotta cheese, you can still add pumpkin seeds, pecans or else any nuts of your choice. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Diwali sweets and savouries as theme, after a super crispy Red rice flakes murukku, i couldnt resist to post this fantastic Diwali special sweets for the theme.

So it is a amalgam of all the three sweets you mentioned above! :) . Burfi looks good and a new variety to add to regular diwali sweets.

@Chris If you want you can replace cheese with Khoya, Indian milk solids,actually this sweet is cooked with milk based products, obviously ricotta cheese or Khoya is a must. Hope this helps.
