Coconut Barfi

This is a coconut fudge recipe. Many a times it is made without milk and is called "Kopra Pak" - "Kopra" means coconut and "Pak" is sugar syrup. This is an eternal favorite. You can also use the store bought unsweetened desiccated coconut or the sweetened coconut flakes. Lessen the sugar if you use the sweet coconut flakes.

Just like bringing a bottle fine wine when you visit someone for the first time, a decorative box filled with different kinds of "Barfi" is a traditional gift in India.


2 cups freshly grated Coconut
1 cup Milk
2 cups Sugar
4 tablespoons ghee
1 teaspoon Cardamom powder
2 table spoons sliced almonds
A few strands of saffron

Heat the milk till it begins to boil. Add the coconut. Lower heat and cook until all the milk has boiled down. Now add the sugar and ghee.  Now add the saffron and cardamom powder. Stir well and put into a greased thali or plate. Decorate with almonds. Cut into squares when cool.

Note : Barfi is a  dessert made from milk that has been cooked slowly and reduced to a fudge-like consistency. This sweet is flavored with either saffron, vanilla essence, cocoa, rose water, etc. Sometimes nuts and fresh coconut is added. Eaten and served in bite sized pieces "Barfi" is a very popular after dinner dessert.
