    • Add the food color to your choice. Also vary the essence to your choice.
    • You should be cautious in one string condition. 
    • I have waited for more than 4 hours to take out the burfi slices…
    • Use a butter paper, foil paper or a lining to the greased plate to take out buffi easily.
