Preparation Time : 10 mins      |      Cooking Time : 8 mins

Ingredients :        



Coconut (grated) 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Cashews (chopped) 1/8 cup
Elaichi powder 2 pinch
Ghee 1 tsp

Method :

  1. Take a pan and fry cashews till golden brown and set aside. Keep a tray ready greased. 
  2. Heat coconut and sugar together & mix well. Stir constantly in medium flame. 
  3. Then sugar will melt and form a thick liquid. Continue this until the mixture starts leaving the pan and forms a foamy whitish bubbles while stirring. Color should not change. 
  4. Add cashews, elaichi powder & mix well.
  5. Then pour immediately to the greased tray and press it with a greased aluminium foil to give it a smooth finish. Cut in to any desired shape while it is still warm.

​Notes :

  • The time taken to get the perfect consistency of burfi varies upon the pan thickness, heat and moisture in coconut. 
  • Don’t set the mixture in tray for so long until it cools down, otherwise it will be very difficult to make pieces. 
  • Sharp knife / pizza cutter / cookie cutter can be used for giving shape.
  • Stirring should stop immediately after the consistency reached, otherwise the sugar’ll get caramelized and color will start to change.
