Coconut Barfi - Happy New Year!!!





Wish you all a very happy & a prosperous new year! 
It's time to celebrate yet another beginning!! 
Kuch meetha ho jaye :)




Quick & Easy! Made very often at our place.

Ingredients:

  • Milk - 1 ltr
  • Grated Coconut - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Ghee - 1 tbsp
  • Powdered Cardamom - 1/2 tsp
  • Dry fruits - Optional


Method:
Take a pan & heat milk on medium flame. When it starts boiling add the grated coconut & lower the flame. Let it cook for sometime. You will see that boiling makes the milk thicker with layers of cream forming on top. Stir it once in a while to avoid settling of coconut at the bottom of the pan & getting burnt. Add sugar after 10 minutes.Keep stirring till the milk & coconut become thick & stick together. Now, add the powdered cardamom & the ghee.You can choose to add some chopped dry fruits to make it nutritious & rich.
When done pour it in a greased plate & you can cut them in the shape you desire. The most common shape is  of a diamond.

Note:

  • The sugar can be put according to taste. 
  • Many recipes will make you fry the grated coconut & add it to a sugar syrup & may be just  2-3 tbsps of milk only. But I stick to my mother's recipe given above.
