My husband Gj buys strawberries a lot. If you ask me if he loves strawberries, the answer is No or May Be. He will buy them in bulk along with some fruits. I will then have the pressure to finish them off as soon as possible because strawberries ripen and get spoiled quickly.
I tell him always to buy a small pack and that has never happened so far. This time, he bought 2 packs of strawberries. Gj and Sanvi had cold so they said no to strawberries. Finally, I have to finish them up. I am not a big fan of strawberries. When I was thinking about finishing off these strawberries without wasting them, I came up with this idea: Strawberry Burfi. It was quite easy to make, and the Burfi had the flavor of strawberries and tasted really good. When Gj came from work, I offered him Strawberry Burfi. He could not make it out. He simply said the taste was really good. When I kept a quiz for both the father and the daughter, both did not find out. They simply said that the burfi had strawberry flavor but both loved it. Hope you all like it too. Here comes the recipe for Strawberry Burfi…
