Afghan Dessert: Burfi? Burfee?

lovepoutine | Jul 24, 2007 11:44 AM

Hello. I moved last year from Baltimore to LA. Back east we had a killer Afghan restaurant called the Helmand. Many years ago they made a dessert that I would love to find in LA, called burfi, or burfee perhaps. Not sure of the spelling. It was a ricotta cheese-like paste that had cardamom, pistachio, maybe rosewater - came served in a bowl. It was blissful. Has anyone heard of this? Are there any good Afghani restaurants around town? I am in Venice but will travel far and wide. Thanks!
