YES! Burfi comes from Persia

The word BURFI comes from the Persian and Urdu word barf which means snow. In the early days of its history, burfi was mainly a white-coloured confection hence the reference to snow. Over time the name evolved to what we know it today as Burfi (or barfi) and it is especially popular in North India. Made of milk, sugar and mild spices; with cashews and coconut as common additions, burfi is often served at celebrations and religious festivals such as Diwali.

In the mid-19th century, workers from India crossed oceans and brought the burfi to Trinidad where it has remained popular till today.
