pumpkin burfi, kaddu ki barfiOne week ago, this little blog of mine turned 3 years old. It’s never too late to celebrate…Isn’t it? If you’re new here or have been following along with my ramblings, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading and showering all your love & support!! I sometimes ask myself, Where did those three years go….they have just flown by!! They say time flies when you’re having fun and love what you do! So, today, I celebrate my 3 rd blogiversary with Pumpkin Burfi

When I started this blog, I had no idea what I was doing and where this is going to head. I just wanted a place where I could share with my family and friends some of the delicious food. Never did I imagine that  people from around the globe would read my recipes, nor in my wildest dreams did I think I’d still be at it even after 3 years. While repeating the words thank you over and over again would definitely be a sufficient way to celebrate my blogiversary. Thanks to my lovely family who always support me, give their feedback and most importantly wait patiently at the dining table until I finish my food photography…..They do hate me at times for this thoughnotsure.

Anyone who knows anything about blogging knows it is seriously hard work. I can’t speak much about other niches of blogging, but food blogging is so demanding and a beast in itself. Standing over your set-up, working & fighting with the light to get the best shot, straining your back (the worst of all), doing loads of dishes, editing the photos, writing the recipes, putting everything together in the post with keywords research, SEO, scheduling social shares, … plus so much more if you are into videos. It’s not easy, but it’s rewarding and you forget all the pain.

What will the future bring? Well, one thing for sure…. I’m not going anywhere yet, this is too much fun and there’s so much more I want to accomplish. I couldn’t be more pleased with how things are going and I hope it will continue to grow!! There will be ups and downs, smiles and frowns…..but, keep moving forward is what I tell myself 🙂

Coming to todays recipe, Pumpkin Burfi is a delicious sweet to suit any occasion. No matter however health conscious you are, you do crave for a little dessert once in a while. So, why not a healthy treat to celebrate my 3 rd blogiversary ?

My Notes:

  1. Adjust sweetness to suit your taste. You can reduce sugar by half a cup.
  2. You can also reduce the quantity of ghee for a healthier option. It will not affect the taste drastically but the fudge may not hold its shape perfectly.
  3. You can also garnish with nuts or even add nuts to the mixture.
  4. For a variation, you can also include half cup fresh Khoya or Mawa at the end and stir for few minutes and turn off the heat.
