This Traditional Dessert is one that I love to make for a few reasons:
  • It's super easy to make. 
  • Moist and Delicious! 
  • Just about everyone loves it. 
  • Full of flavor. 
  • It requires less than 30 minutes. 

This recipe is close to my heart, and it was my second rasoi(Rasoi Ceremony); first was Puranpoli!
About Rasoi Ceremony: Post marriage, as per tradition, the new bride in the house takes over the duties of the kitchen from her MIL. The rasoi ceremony is to introduce the bride to the new kitchen; the Rasoi ceremony held where the bride generally cooks something sweet for the very first time. Any auspicious occasion begins with something sweet, and likewise, something sweet is cooked in the rasoi ceremony as well!

Keep in mind these basic things to get Moist and Perfect Textured Traditional Fresh Coconut Burfi:
  • To get perfectly white coconut burfi: scrape the skin of the fresh coconut(because we don't need the coconut shell particles to come in gratings). Wash and pat dry the coconut, and grate or grind the coconut. 
  • So do not use the last brown covering part of the coconut for the burfi. That will change the color of the burfi.
  • The trick in making burfi is to know the right time to remove from the flame. So pay attention there. If you take the pan off the fire too early, the burfi mix will be too soft and will not set. If you take it off a little late, the burfi mix will be too dry and will crumble and will not retain the shape you want.
  • The addition of milk and milk cream/malai makes burfi soft, moist, and juicy texture, so don't skip adding milk. 
  • Always cook the coconut, sugar, and milk mixture on medium to low flame. 
  • This burfi tastes well when you make it using freshly grated coconut, so try to get the fresh coconut and grate or grind it at home. 
  • Do not saute coconut so much; otherwise, the coconut would change its color to light brown. 

If the burfi is soft and not able to cut into pieces:
  • It means we need to cook the mixture for some more time. Cook the mixture on low flame till all the moisture is absorbed. 

If the Burfi starts to crumble:
  • It means mixture overcooked, so add 2 Tbsp milk and reheat the mixture. Keep cooking in low flame till all the moisture is absorbed and then pour the mixture into the plate.
