Coconut Burfi /thengai burfi is very easy to prepare and needs no expertise. It is a very delicious fudge made with fresh grated coconut and I love it for its chewy taste. Today let us learn how to make coconut burfi (coconut is known as nariyal in Hindi and Thengai in Tamil) following this easy coconut burfi recipe.
Grease a tray with ghee and keep it ready.
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.
