Coconut barfi

Ingredients to make Coconut barfi

  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Powdered cardamom (from 4 pods)
  • 2 tbsp ghee

How to make Coconut barfi

  1. Place the sugar and water in a thick walled/ heavy bottom pan.
  2. Over medium heat, stir till the sugar dissolves completely and starts boiling.
  3. Keep stirring frequently and let the sugar syrup cook and thicken till it reaches a 2 string consistency.
  4. When the sugar syrup has reached the desired consistency, add the grated coconut and stir well. The mixture will take on a slightly wet look from the milk in the coconut.
  5. Continue cooking the mixture stirring constantly, till it thickens quite a bit and the edges start looking white and take on a frothy appearance.
  6. At this point the mixture will be thick and somewhat dry looking. Don't worry, it will stay together.
  7. Allow to cool and harden a bit. Cut into 16 small squares. If you plan to keep this beyond 3 or 4 days, then please refrigerate the burfi, in an airtight container, after it has cooled.
