Likitha Nanaiah Kuttanda’s mother, Shambavi Konganda was a great cook. Following in her footsteps, homemaker Likitha’s hobbies also include reading, travelling, and a little bit of gardening. She shares her Horlick’s burfi recipe.

Horlicks Burfi



  • ¾ cup gram flour/ besan 
  • ¼ cup Horlicks 
  • ¼ cup ghee 
  • ½ cup oil 
  • ¾ cup sugar 
  • ¼ cup water 


Heat I tsp ghee in a non-stick pan. When it is hot, add in gram flour and roast it for two minutes.

Once it is roasted, remove from the heat and sieve it. Now add in Horlicks and mix well.


In the same pan, add the sugar and water, and mix well so the sugar is dissolved. Bring this to a boil and cook till one string consistency is reached.

Once it reaches one string consistency, add in besan and Horlicks mixture slowly so no lumps are formed.

Next, add the ghee and oil slowly and keep mixing on medium heat. Cook till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.

Pour this into a greased tray and let it cool down.

Once cooled, cut it into squares.
