Coconut Burfi

Week 2 Day 3 of BM #57 -

For the last post under Indian desserts, here is the humble coconut burfi which is my childhood favorite. My mom rarely use to make/makes this as my dad was/is sensitive to coconut. So my favorite jaunt was to my aunt's place. There I remember I used to hog these pure white beauties to my heart's content totally unmindful of the calories :).

The burfis I made are not the pure white kind as I could not remove the brown part of the coconut when shredding it. But nevertheless it was pure and unadulterated pleasure to enjoy these burfis. Next time I intend to use the frozen shredded coconut to simplify the process.

In my anxiety to taste these I removed them from heat before time and so had to be satisfied with a slightly softer version.

Ingredients - 

Coconut, grated 1 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Ghee 1 tsp  (for greasing - optional if using parchment paper)

Coconut Burfi

Method Of Preparation -

Grease a flat tray with raised edges. If you are like me, just spray some oil on the tray and layer a parchment paper.

In a non stick thick bottomed pan, add the sugar and water and let it boil until the syrup comes to a single thread consistency.

Add the grated coconut, mix well and let it becomes single mass.

Quickly remove the onto the prepared tray, pat it flat and let it cool for a few minutes. Make markings with a sharp knife to divide into 1 inch squares.

Enjoy or store in an air tight container. I am sure they will be over before the need to store them arises.
