This dish does’t require ghee or oil. So, persons who are health and weight conscious, can have this sweet very well. It is very easy and takes very less time to prepare comparing to other sweets. Let’s see the preparation of this healthy and delicious sweet.
- Desicated coconut powder – 150 grams (around 3 cups)
- Sugar – 50 grams (1 cup)
- Maida (Refined flour) – 2 Table spoon
- Milk Powder – 50 grams
- Ghee for greasing – -1 -2 drops
I use Everyday milk powder. It enhances the taste of burfi and gives whitish creamy colour to the burfi.
- Roast maida in a pan on medium flame for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and take out roasted maida to a plate. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
- Take a bowl and pour desicated coconut powder, roasted maida and milk powder to it. Mix them well with the help of a spoon. Keep it aside. Take a plate and grease it with a drop of ghee Now we have to prepare sugar syrup.
- Pour sugar and ¾ cup of water to a wide mouthed pan and place it on medium flame. Stir it continously so that sugar will dessolve fast. After sugar dessolved completely, make the flame low. Let the syrup boil for 5 minutes so that big bubbles should appear on the surface of the syrup. Further boil it for another 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. this is called one string syrup.
- Add the mixture of coconut, milk powder and maida to the syrup. Mix them well with help of a spoon. Pour the mixture to the greased plate and spread it evenly throughout the plate. Apply a drop of ghee or oil to back of the spoon while spreading so that the mixture will not stick to the spoon.
- After 15 minutes, cut them into square shape or any shape you want. If you want you can sprinkle chopped dry fruits. Delecious coconut burfi is ready to serve.
