Jowar Burfi/ Jowar Flour Fudge

  • Jowar flour/Sorghum flour - 1 cup
  • Water - 1/4 cup (or more)
  • Powdered jaggery - 3/4 cup(loosely packed)
  • Ghee - 1/4 cup
  • Caradom powder - 1/4 tsp


  1. In a heavy bottomed pan, dry roast jowar flour until it turns golden. Allow it to cool slightly.
  2. In a pan, combine together water and powdered jaggery, cook until it turns slightly thick and sticky.
  3. Add roasted jowar flour, ghee and cardamom powder, stir continuously for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer this onto a greased tray, level the surface using a spatula. Garnish with grated cashew nuts or almonds, if desired. Cut this into squares; allow it to cool completely before serving.

Do not cook the jaggery for too long, if you do so the burfi will turn very hard as it cools.
