Coconut Burfi Recipe
Oh my! My mouth is already watering.
Coconut burfi is one of the most popular dishes that is prepared during special occasions. One important thing to be kept in mind during the preparation is to use freshly grated coconut.
– 2 cups freshly grated coconut
– 2 cups sugar
– 1/4 cup water
– 1/4 cup milk
– 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
The first thing you need to do is prepare the sugar syrup. Stir the sugar and water in a medium size sauce pan and turn on the heat to medium. Continue to boil the sugar mixture till the entire liquid reaches a two string consistency.
The right consistency can be found out by the cold water candy test. Fill a cup with a few tablespoons of water and add a drop of sugar syrup to it. If the drop remains intact without dissolving in the liquid, then it is the right consistency.
To the sugar syrup, add the grated coconut, cardamom powder and milk. Continue stirring so that the mixture doesn’t stick to the pan.
In about fifteen minutes, the mixture will thicken and tend to flow out of the pan. Stop stirring at this stage and turn off the heat. In 10 to 15 minutes, the mixture will thicken and will tend to come out from the sides of the pan. The sugar gets crystallized and what remains is a solidified burfi.
Transfer the entire dish into a tray and grease it with ghee. Cut the burfi into cubes and set the tray aside for a couple of hours for the entire mixture to cool.
Once cooled, serve it with all love and affection! I bet your brother would give you a warm hug and feed you with some of it!
