Coconut Burfi

Coconut Burfi

A quick and simple Coconut Burfi. Have 15 minutes on hand, why not try this easy dessert recipe. A step by step recipe which guides you through the whole process and within minutes you have a perfect dessert ready for your family (minus the time which is required to set it).

Usually this dessert is made by grating fresh coconut, since I didn’t have any fresh coconut on hand so I used the unsweetened desiccated coconut in my recipe. Sauteing desiccated coconut in ghee gave this burfi a toasted flavor and mixing it with condensed milk added a rich texture.

I always keep desiccated coconut in my pantry and use it to prepare sweet and savory Indian dishes. Desiccated coconut has an impressive nutrient content and offers 4.6 grams of fiber per ounce (as mentioned on it’s packet). Let’s begin with our step by step recipe.

      Sneha, it’s fine use fresh coconut. Change the following in the recipe –
      1. Add extra milk mawa powder.
      2. Skip the milk.
      3. Reduce the quantity of ghee from 1/3 cup to 2 tablespoon.
