Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. 4 cups Milk
  2. 3 cups scrapped coconut
  3. 2 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 5 tbsp ghee


  1. Take a wide pan and add in the milk, sugar and freshly shredded coconut. Keep the pan on stove and start stirring on a medium flame. If the milk boils over, try to reduce the flame to low for a couple of minutes and increase the flame again. Keep stirring.
  2. It will start to bubble up after 15 minutes. The mixture will be watery at this moment. If at any point of time, the milk boils over, try to reduce the flame to low for a couple of minutes and increase the flame again.
  3. After 30 minutes, add in the ghee and continue to stir. The mixture will slowly start to thicken up. Lot of patience. Remember, good things take time.
  4. After 45 minutes, the mixture would start drying up. It will be gooey at this stage.
  5. After one hour, the mixture would have dried considerably and there would not be any liquid left. It will be like the consistency of wet sand. Turn off the flame.
  6. Apply ghee to an aluminium pan and dump the hot coconut burfi mixture on the sheet pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. Allow it to cool for one hour. Mark with a knife and gently remove each piece to a serving plate or a storage container.
