Singhare or water chestnut flour burfi is an easy sweet dish made during fasting. Other than singhare ka atta, it requires basic ingredients like sugar, water, ghee and nuts. It gets ready in no time, which makes it best for those fasting days when you are in no mood to put extra efforts in anything.
