Deepavali/Diwali is round the corner, so thought of sharing a sweet dish recipe….ie…Pistachio/Pista burfi. It is very simple to make and very delicious to relish. I have used very less amount of ghee, you can use according to your preference. I insist make it for this diwali/deepavali and enjoy relishing it with the family.
