Coconut Burfi

Coconut Burfi a sweet loved by all who love coconut. I have been making this burfi from so many years but the biggest compliment I got for this sweet was from my close friend's kid who I went to see a few weekds back, who was hardly 1.5 yrs and could barely talk, but the minute she tasted this sweet, she kept pointing out to the sweet and kept saying "more..gimme more"
That's when I decided that I must put this up on my blog.


Coconut grated - 4 cups
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 2 cups
Ghee or Clarified butter - 1 cup
Take a heavy bottomed pan, preferably ordinary pan cause this cooks faster in ordinary heavy bottomed pan.
In non-stick it takes more time, and does not taste as good. Put all the above mentioned ingredients in the pan, and keep on low heat. Keep stirring occassionally for about 20 mins. At this stage, the mixture in the pan will be bubbling like hot lava, so dont come too close to the pan. Gradually after 20-25 mins, the mixture starts to thicken.

 Now stir continously till the color changes from whitish to brownish as shown in the pic below.Once the ghee begins to separate, switch off the heat and allow to rest for 2-3 mins.
Now pour this in any plate of atleast 2 inches depth and spread it evenly as shown.You could even use a baking tray. 
The burfi mixture is still hot, so take care not to burn your fingers while spreading it in the plate. Now make cut marks as shown.
Allow to cool for about 20 mins.
Now remove the pieces gently and turn them over on another dish and allow to cool.
Serve as desired.
