Tricolor Burfi

Happy Independence Day to all of you!! Burfi is an Indian sweet dish prepared using condensed milk. There are varieties of burfi recipes however this one I made as Independence day special in three colors representing Indian flag. The three layers are prepared separately and then overlapped to make it tricolor. The burfi had a unique taste as it had three different flavors.
