Coconut Burfi Recipe | Sweet Recipes

how to make thenga burfi/ coconut burfi at home
Coconut Burfi is one sweet which stays close to my heart always. Its the first sweet I made for my hubby before marriage and he liked it so much. So then and now, I always make this for him or my mom makes it for us and sends over. Like having tea or coffee after waking up, my hubby haves one piece of this burfi. Lucky one huh?? 

To me, my mom makes these burfi's so fast and perfect. She adds lot of cashew-nuts on top which adds crunch and nutty flavour.   

With just two ingredients, this easy and tasty sweet which pleases everyone sweet tooth will be ready in minutes!!! Enjoy the delectable sweet!!!

Recipe Category: Sweet/ South Indian
Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes  Serves: 25 pieces
Coconut Flakes 2 cups,fresh
Sugar 2 cups
Ghee 1 tbsp(for greasing)

Method of Preparation:
1. In a wide heavy bottomed non stick pan, add the grated coconut and sugar.
2. Stir gently over the medium flame. After few minutes, the sugar starts to melt down, mixture starts to thicken and leave the sides. Switch off.
3. Grease a plate with ghee and turn over the coconut mixture on it. Spread it evenly on the plate with knife/flat wooden laddle.
4. Leave it aside to rest completely for not more than 5 minutes and then cut it into desired shape. Let it cool down completely before storing in an air tight container.

  • Once you transfer to the plate, let it cool for only five minutes, then cut down the desired shapes when it is still warm and then let it cool down again.
  • If you let it cool completely before cutting the shapes, burfi gets set and will be difficult to cut perfect shapes. 
  • You can add ghee, cardamom and cashew-nuts for a more rich flavour.
