Coconut Burfi

Everyone of us will always relate to childhood days once we see coconut burfi...it was such a treat for me as a kid mom always used to make a very large batch of these burfi during summer vacation nowadays we never make sweets at home totally stopped eating sweets for a long long time :(  one of my best friends from orrisa is visiting me this week and i wanted to surprise him with burfi and other sweets...and planned to post my recipe for coconut burfi...do try this recipe friends...:)
Its dads job to break the coconut in my house i will always depend on him to break a coconut i dunno why:D










Since we stay in a apartment these days we dont have a regular stone to break the coconut dad the genius found this coconut chipper in the market and yes he is the only one in the family knows how to handle it...:D

  • After breaking the coconut you can either use a scraper to grate the coconut or a simple method to remove the husk is to cut the coconut into chunks as usual and with the help of a potato peeler peel out the outer brown thin skin this way its very easy to prepare pure white shredded coconut.
  • Rinse the coconut twice in water before adding to mixerjar.
  • Add the coconut in to a small coffee grinder and pulse for 3 to 4 times this will give great results and we have perfect grated coconut.
Ingredients:
1 Cup Grated Coconut
1 Cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Ghee
1/4 Tsp Cardamom Powder
Pinch of Salt

Method:
  •  In a heavy bottom wok add the grated coconut and sugar combine the sugar and coconut.
  • Allow the coconut and sugar mixture to rest for 1 hour before preparing.
  • After an hour the coconut and sugar have combined thoroughly the sugar has melted and ready to be cooked.
This process is very important to follow if you like your burfi to be perfect white in color.
  • Before placing the burfi on fire apply very little ghee on a plate and set aside.
  • Place the wok on the fire and constantly keep stirring the mixture on medium flame add ghee, cardamom powder and salt stir and combine all the ingredients.
  • Once the coconut mixture combines and leaves the sides of the wok remove from flame.
  • Spread the coconut burfi in the greased plate.
  • Cut into desired shapes and serve with love...Happy Cooking...:)
Do watch my demo video enjoy...:)

  1. Fresh coconut in the barfi must taste heavenly. I love the gadget you are using to crack open your coconut.
