Chocolate Coconut Burfi Recipe
Grated Coconut - 1 cup
Cocoa powder - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom a pinch
Method to prepare:
Grate the coconut. Grating this when it is fresh is always best.
Add water enough to just cover the sugar and melt the sugar. Once you remove the scum, if any, bring the syrup to a boil. The syrup be of one thread consistency.
Add the grated coconut, cardamom powder, to the sugar syrup. Stir well so that it gets mixed fully! Keep stirring or else it might get burnt. You will know its done when the coconut starts coming off the pan. Add the cocoa powder at this stage, stir well again.
For more taste, you can powder some cashew nuts and add.
Grease a plate on which you are going to set this. Then once the barfi is done, pour on to the greased plate. Just tap the plate down, it will get set automatically. Using a greased spatula, spread on the top for a even spread.
With a knife, make horizontal lines and then do a cross line across to get diamond shaped Barfi. I have always see only diamond shaped ones. But this time had a square ones done.
