Coconut Burfi ~ For Blog Hop Wednesdays ~ From Sara's Kitchen

Until a few hours back, I had no idea what day is today. That is the euphoria of India visit. Naturally I forgot about this blog hop post.

And when I remembered the Internet connection was playing prank. I am just glad that I had tried the recipe for this post some times back and now just needed to compose the post.

This week I am assigned Sara's Blog and I chose this sweet dish. I chose is specially because it is microwave version. Now, I have a very basic microwave and I generally use it only for reheating. It was fun trying a new recipe. Only think I thought was the burfis were a little too sweet, so I reduced the sugar and next time I try it I would like to add 1/2 cup of Khoya for a richer texture and taste.


2 Cup Coconut, I used dessicated. How ever, freshly dessicated will taste better.
1 cup sugar.
3/4 cup water
4 tbsp semolina.
2 tbsp ghee.
3 cardamom pods seeds powdered.

1. In a microwave safe bowl, add the water and sugar and microwave on a high for 4 minutes stirring every two minutes to make a one string consistency sugar syrup.

2. Now add rest of the ingredients and mix. Microwave it for another 6-8 minutes stirring it every 2 minutes, till the mixture looses moisture and becomes spreadable.

3. In a lined baking tray or thali spread this mixture and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut it in desired shape.

4. When completely cooled take out individual burfis. Serve and enjoy.

Note: If you wish to add Khoya add it in the second step and adjust the sweetness. I will definitely try it next time.
