This is fantastic dessert.  In Pakistan there's no need to make it at home b'coz u can get great milk burfis in sweet shops.  But for those living in other countries may need to know how to prepare it at home. 

Regarding your second recipe, sis, professionally I think yr friend missed out one step though probably not a very important step.  My mom has made burfi at home many times.  Here's how she makes it.

1) First put the full cream milk (u r right, half 'n' half wud be better) in a thick based container and on simmer until it evaporates and turns almost solid. 

2) Then cool a bit, and put this solid evaporated milk in another thick based container.  Add sugar to it according to your taste.  Then cook it on medium to low heat stirring constantly until the sugar is absorbed and the mixture is quite dry. 

3) Next step, take half cup full cream milk with pinch of saffron and quarter tsp cardamom powder or few cardamom seeds.  Heat it for approx. 40 seconds in the microwave.  Add it to the solid evaporated milk.  Also add a little butter to it.  Keep stirring on medium to low heat for a little while longer until the liquid milk is absorbed and the mixture looks dry & moist. 

4) Next step, spread it evenly on a flat, slightly greased, plate and cool.  Don't put it in the fridge immediately.  Let it cool at room temperature for about 1 hour.  Then put it in the fridge for another 2 hrs.  Now take it out of the fridge, cut into squares or diamonds, decorate the pieces with almond or pistachio slices.

5) Final step, enjoy eating!  Cheesy
