Bread-Coconut Burfi

BM #42 starts today. For week 1, I have chosen to blog some festival recipes. The festival specials are for Raksha Bandhan, Vinayaka Chaturthi and Krishnashtami.

Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Sravana (typically mid august) in the Lunar Calender. Raksha = Protection, Bandhan = Tie, is a sacred thread of protection tied by the sisters on the wrists of their brothers. It signifies the mutual love and affection between siblings. 

This has an underlying social significance in that it promotes harmonious relationship between all the people in the community.

Bread-Coconut Burfi

Method Of Preparation -

Blend all the ingredients except ghee.

Pour the mixture in a heated pan with 2 tsp of ghee.

Let the mixture cook for a few minutes (7-8 minutes) until it becomes a single mass and doesn't stick to the sides.

Remove from fire and pat it on a greased plate. Let it cool for a little while and cut them into desired shapes.

Upon cooling the burfis are ready to be enjoyed. they are soft, chewy and melt in the mouth.
