Preparation

Grease a tray with ghee and keep it ready.

Method

Take a kadai/pan (non stick preferable) add sugar and just enough water (approximately 1/2 cup) to cover the sugar and boil it.

When the sugar water starts boiling, add cardamom powder, ghee and the grated coconut.

Simmer and cook stirring often, till the coconut mixture starts foaming and leaves the sides of the pan. Take a small mixture and if you are able to make a ball out of it, switch off the flames.

Pour it on the greased tray or plate. After it cools a little, cut it into desired shapes.

Leave it to cool completely. After that take the pieces gently and store it in an air tight container.

Enjoy making this easy coconut burfi for Diwali.

  17. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It tastes good. However, I wasn't too pleased with the quantity that came out. It was just too little and didnt fill up the standard stainless steel thattu ( plate) that I was using. In future, should I just use more coconut ?

    1. You can double the quantity of coconut, sugar and other ingredients. I have written under yields (in that box) that this measurement will yield only 10 small burfis. So if you want more, double the quantity.

  20. Dear Padu what about dirt in sugar. Should we remove it or not necessary.

    1. Buy clean good quality sugar. Another suggestion is you can filter after the sugar dissolves and then follow the same method.
