Coconut Burfi Recipe
Ingredients Required:
  • Shredded coconut
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Dry fruits 
 In a non-stick pan, take milk, add sugar and bring it to boil. Then add coconut to it. Let it boil on simmered flame for quite sometime until the milk is reduced to half. But you should keep on stirring frequently to avoid the milk getting burnt.
As soon as the milk gets thickened, just like condensed milk, add edible yellow color to it. Finally, after a couple of minutes pour it onto a greased plate. Let it stand for half an hour and cut it in the shape of a burfi. It could be diamond shaped, square or triangle shaped as per your liking. Garnish it with pistachios and almonds.
And the coconut burfi is ready!
