Recipes - Coconut Burfi


3 cups grated coconut

¼ cup rose water

1 pinch Cardamom powder

2 table spoons Nido powder

2 tbsp. ghee


Pink Colour



Grate the coconut, see that you do not scrape till the end.  You should not use the brown part only the white one.  Grind it with rose water to a fine paste. Now measure the paste.  If two cups then take two cups of sugar.  Take a heavy bottom pan.  Pour the mixture with sugar, milk powder and keep on stirring.  Then the mixture leaves the side of the pan.  Add ghee and keep mixing.  Add cardamom powder.  Add a pinch of pink color.  Grease a steel plate with ghee and pour the mixture into it, flatten it with the back of the spoon evenly, cut into diamond shapes while still warm.  Let it cool completely.
