7 cups

As the name says 7 cups have 7 cups of main ingredients in it. It tastes like ghee Mysore pak + coconut burfi. Super tasty sweet for the next festive season!
I got this recipe from our lovely family friend and neighbour Vimalaunty. She is such a fantastic cook that every time I visit here there will be something homemade to welcome me. I have tried 7 cups few times from her and it is very tasty. So here I come up with Vimalaunty 's recipe for 7 cups with minor modifications made on it. I used almond flour instead of besan/ chickpea flour. Also I have added some saffron milk and edible silver leaves to it.

  1. Besan flour or Almond flour - 1 cup
  2. Ghee/clarified butter - 1 cup
  3. Coconut shredded - 1 cup
  4. Milk - 1 cup
  5. Sugar - 3 cups
  6. Saffron milk- 2tsp(optional)
  7. Edible silver leaf - 1 or 2 sheets

  1. Mix all ingredients except saffron milk in a  wide heavy bottom pan
  2. Make sure that there is no lumps
  3. Move the pan on to stove 
  4. Cook 7 cups in medium flame and stir continuously so that the batter doesn't stick to the bottom 
  5. Once the batter is thickened ( you should be able to pour it , but not smooth flow. After you pour, you should be able to smoothen it using spoon or spatula without pressure) and add saffron milk and roughly mix it. 
  6. Pour it in to a tray with parchment paper in it and let it cool
  7. Place edible silver leaf on top of it
  8. Using a knife cut it before it gets fully cool and hard

If you have used almond flour, your 7 cups will be softer. If besan flour, then it is slightly harder
