Yummy Chikoo ki Vadi

BM #63 Day 25 - 

For the penultimate day of this Mega Marathon, I had to use an adjective to get through this though letter - Y. But the Vadi or Burfi is an addictive one. The burfi has the unmistakable flavor of chikoo (or Sapota as we call it) and makes a delightful dessert to share.

My friend asked her mom to share the exact recipe, but apparently she works with a voluntary organization where they prepare this Vadi and sell commercially. So her mom said she cannot divulge the proprietary recipe. That was when my friend searched multiple recipes and gave me this formula as she felt it was close to what her mom makes. Later when I shared this Vadi with her, she was happy to have suggested this recipe :).

Recipe Source - Referred lot of sources on Youtube but this method was certified as more authentic by my friend.

Ingredients - 

Chikoo peeled, seeded and chopped 2 cups (I used the frozen fruit 12 oz pack)
Coconut, shredded 3/4 cup (fresh or frozen)
Mawa / Khoya 3/4 cup (I used Homemade Khoya)
Ghee 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1/2 cup
Almonds, crushed handful
Cashews chopped 2 Tbsp for garnish

Yummy Chikoo ki Vadi

Method Of Preparation -

Thaw the frozen chikoo and mash with a spoon.

In a non stick wok/kadai/pan, add the ghee and the mashed chikoo.

Add in the coconut too and saute for 3-4 minutes.

Add the khoya, sugar and crushed almonds.

Keep stirring as it tends to burn very easily.

Stir until it comes together as a single mass.

Grease a tray and pour the mixture onto it and flatten it with a greased spatula.

Sprinkle the chopped cashews and press them in gently.

Let it cool for a few minutes.

Slice into desired shapes and enjoy.
