Coconut Burfi (Nariyal ki Barfi)

coconut burfi

Coconut burfi or nariyal ki barfi is a popular Indian sweet which is made on festive occasions.  So many of us have fond childhood memories of our mothers or grandmothers preparing coconut burfi on festivals like Janamashtmi. Here is an easy recipe of coconut barfi.
Recipe of coconut burfi/ nariyal ki burfi
2 cups desiccated coconut
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
1. Grease a thali (platter) with few drops of ghee or butter and keep aside.
2. In a kadhai/wok, take water and sugar and cook on medium-low heat till sugar dissolves and syrup (chashni) comes to boil.
3. Cook, stirring occasionally, till syrup reaches 2 thread consistency. To test this, take few drops of the syrup on a plate and touch with your thumb and forefinger. As you stretch the syrup, it should form some threads.
4. Add coconut and cardamom powder and mix well. Cook, stirring, till coconut begins to clump together and leave the sides of the kadhai.
5. Immediately pour this mixture on the greased thali and spread evenly with a big spoon.
6. Let it cool and harden slightly. Cut into diamonds or squares. Let the burfi cool completely. Store coconut burfi in an airtight jar.
