Coconut and Milk Burfi

Hi every one...I hope all of you remember me....this time its been long long long time I haven't updated my blog. The reason behind is i was bit busy with my other activities (Henna and face painting and candles painting)..There are lot of recipes waiting in my draft...so now I decided to re-start again....

I would like to start with a sweet recipe as today is New year eve.....lets welcome the new year with is very easy and yummy coconut burfi recipe...

Desiccated coconut(medium)- 300 gm or fresh grated coconut
Sugar - 250 gm
water 50 ml
milk - 250 ml
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp [optional]
a big plate greased with ghee(clarified butter)

How to prepare:

Take a heavy bottomed vessel, add water and sugar and milk on medium low flame allow the sugar to dissolve and come to a boil. Stir it and allow the syrup to thicken. Let the sugar syrup cook and thicken till it reaches 1 string consistency. Test the syrup by using your thumb and index finger and touch the sugar syrup and as your stretch the syrup, it should form a threads. This takes approx 12-15 mins.
Immediately at this stage add the Desiccated coconut or grated coconut, cardamom powder and stir. Stir at regular intervals till the mixture appears thick and leaves the sides of the vessel. This could take about 10 mins (if you are using fresh grated coconut it will take more time may be 15 to 18 mins)then turn off heat.
Immediately pour the mixture on to a greased plate and spread out evenly with a spatula. Allow to cool and slightly harden. Cut into desired shapes and cool completely.

Once it is cool down completely take it out from the plate and store in an airtight container.
