Burundai or Buruldai (d.1282) was a notable Mongol general of the mid XIII century. He participated in the Mongol invasion of Russia and Europe in 1236-1242.

Serving under Batu Khan and later his brother Berke, he led a force that overcame the resistance of Danylo of Halych in 1259, and after that alongside Nogai Khan led a second raid against Lithuania and Poland, plundering several villages of northern Poland and cities such as Sandomierz, Zawichost and Kraków. He invaded the southern border of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1259, but the Lithuanians fled before the decisive battle.

He was probably killed in battle at the Terek River during the Berke-Hulagu war.
