Nutri Mix Powder Burfi | Amruthampodi burfi with jaggery

Hello, there today I am sharing a simple popular sweet recipe burfi(gur papdi). I made this burfi using Nutri mix powder.

 The Amrutham Podi/ Nutrimix Powder is a health supplement provided by Kudumbasree that is aimed to satisfy nutritional requirements of the children of Kerala(India) between the ages of six months and three years.It operates under the Take Home Ration Strategy which is a feeding programme through Anganwadis, and the Nutrimix is distributed in the form of Take-Home-Ration.

There are five major ingredients in the Amrutham Nutrimix: Wheat, Groundnut, Soybean, Gram Dal and sugar/jaggery.
