Coconut Barfi Recipe



I am stealing some time very quickly as my little one sleeps to do this post. I am going to post recipes without ranting too much about them, I don't think I can afford that kind of time anymore :).

I had a lot of coconuts remaining from a pooja and had to finish them up and this was the quickest and easiest sweet that I could make. So here it is :)


Ingredients

Makes about 20 pieces

Grated coconut - 3 cups
Sugar - 2.5 cups
Water - 3/4 cups
Broken cashews - 4-5 Tbsp
Ghee - few tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp



How do you make it


1. Heat a pan with a spoon of ghee in it and fry the cashews until golden brown. Keep aside

2. Take a wide bottom non-stick pan and add water and sugar and mix well. The sugar will start to bubble at one point. Keep mixing now and then and wait until sugar reaches single thread consistency.

3. This can be checked when you take a drop of sugar water between your thumb and forefinger and see if it forms a single thread. This step is of importance and has to be noted properly. Otherwise it could spoil the consistency of the barfi.

4. At this stage add the grated coconut and mix well.

5. The coconut and sugar water will form a mass, at this stage add cardamom powder, cashews and 3 tbsp of ghee and mix well.

6. Keep mixing well until everything comes together and forms a big lump without sticking to the sides of the pan, like halwa. This stage is important as well - if you take the barfi earlier, it wont set and a little later - they will turn out hard

7. Meanwhile grease a cookie sheet with some ghee to transfer the barfi.

8. Once the barfi comes to the right consistency, remove and transfer to greased cookie sheet and pat with spatula to form a smooth surface.

9. After 5 min, while the barfi is still warm, cut squares with a knife and leave it for a few more minutes to cool them. Transfer to an air-tight container.

Enjoy these yummy barfis :)
