Gond Panjiri/Gond Burfi/ Janmashtami Special

Today I’m posting Gond Panjiri which is a must to make on Janmashtami in North India.   This is a recipe given to me by my mom. As I already told in Dhania panjiri,I have eaten all these from my childhood.

This gond panjiri we can eat after delivery also.

Yesterday I asked my mom about  the difference of panjiri and burfi ,she said we old people  called it  panjiri and you new generation called it  burfi. It is the same thing.
