  • Refrigerate for 3 hours. Remove from refrigerator and use an ice-cream scoop to scoop the mixture into little balls. Decorate with roasted, chopped pistachio nuts


  1. If you don't have rose water you can use rose essence, however some brands of rose essence can be quite strong so please use your discretion when adding it to the mixture
  2. You can use dessert cream instead of fresh cream
  3. The butter ghee can be replaced with butter
  4. The burfee can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for a month
