Though this recipe looks super easy, but this is a very tricky recipe. I mean, if your first attempt doesn't give you satisfactory results, don't give up .

I am sharing a very simplified and easy preparation of this recipe.

A quick recap

Important points related to Sev Mithai 

✅This sweet should have very soft, melt is mouth consistency. If you don't get the proper shape for this Barfi, that's perfectly fine, but the melt in mouth texture is 100% required.

✅Rose essence works great in this recipe. Please don't try this recipe without rose essence flavor. Sorry to say, but the cardamom flavor doesn't work in this sweet. 

✅To get a good quality unsweetened mawa is like a big challenge these days as mawa is the most adulterated food items , so that's why I prefer home made thickened milk for all my sweets preparations.

✅A touch of yellow color is required for this recipe, but you can skip that, if not comfortable with food colors.
