Coconut barfi

Today is the last day of Navaratri. We have made one of our favorite sweets during the festive season for the kids today. Here is how we make our traditional coconut barfis.

Bringing the ingredients together...

Coconut barfi recipe

Coconut – 1, matured one or 2 cups of scraped coconut shreds
Water – 2 cups
Milk – 2 tablespoon
Sugar – 1-1/2 cups
Cardamoms – 6, finely powdered
Ghee – 3 tablespoons, melted

Method: Fry the coconut shreds gently in a dry pan over moderate heat till the coconut milk moisture is somewhat lessened. Boil the water in a wide-mouthed vessel over moderate heat. When the water boils, add the sugar and keep on stirring till the sugar water boils. Add the milk to the boiling sugar syrup to remove the scum and dirt if any and remove them when they come to the surface. When the sugar syrup reaches a thick syrupy stage, add the fried coconut shreds to it. Stir constantly till the coconut and sugar syrup are blended thickly and stickily together. Now add the ghee and cardamom seeds powder. When the mixture looks thick and frothy, remove from the heat and pour into a ghee-smeared table or plate. Flatten the surface evenly with the help of an oiled flat slice. When cold, cut into squares or diamond shapes. Enjoy!
