Low Carb Indian Sweet Recipe-Doda Burfi Fudge

Diwali is here and markets are full of various kinds of sweets. Every time I enter the market my torturous sweet tooth becomes the biggest devil of my life. As it is my weight is troubling me real bad these days so I thought of making something sweet but healthy and low carb Mithai this Diwali. I started it as an experiment to make low carb Indian Mithai, and after half an hour of effort and testing all my knowledge about low carb foods this is what I created.

  • Sprinkle some more coconut flour on top and let it cool. (I was very impatient so kept it in the freezer.) 😛

  • Once set split all the pieces and serve or hide it somewhere in a safe place.

  • Those who like honey can have some honey dribbled all over the plate. since I am allergic to honey so I left it like that only.
