Coconut Burfi


• 1¾ C sugar
• 1/3 C water
• 2½ C packed fresh grated coconut
• ½ Tsp cardamom powder
• 2 Tbsp ghee
1. Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan over moderate heat. Bring to a boil and simmer. Stirring often cook until it reaches 2-3 thread consistency. (Check the consistency by placing a few drops of warm syrup between your thumb and index finger. Slowly release the finger apart, and if the syrup forms into 2-3 threads then you have reached the right consistency. Otherwise, cook more till the desired consistency).
2. Add the coconut and cardamom and cook stirring for 15-20 minutes or until the mixture turns sticky. Add ghee and mix well.
3. Transfer the coconut mixture to a greased plate/tray and spread evenly. When warm, cut in square pieces and allow to cool completely.
