Maida Burfi/ Maida Cake

Maida / All purpose flour -1/2cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup (adjust to sweet, up to 1 cup)
Ghee - 1/4cup
Food color - few drops
Tutty fruity - 1/8 cup (optional)
Elaichi -2

Heat the ghee and roast the maida. You will get nice aroma and the color of the flour should not change it.
Add a cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of water and start heating.
Once the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency, remove it from stove. Immediately add the roasted maida, food color, tutty fruity and elaichi powder and start mixing.
Keep on mixing it(off the stove), until the flour+sugar syrup reaches halwa consistency.
It will be like liquid, but when cooling it slowly becomes a nonsticky halwa.
By then pour it on a greased plate and level it with a greased spatula.
 Here I have added 3 drops of green food color and red color tutty fruity. Once it cools down completely, remove it from the plate and cut it into desired shape.
This is the recipe from Rak's kitchen. I just followed her recipe. You can check here for step by step pictures and a video.  I felt the sweetness was little more for our palate. Next time  I will reduce it to 3/4 cup. :)
