Ingredients (Yields - an 8x8 inch dish, approximately 16 pieces)
Shredded coconut -- 1 cup (preferably only white part)
Sugar -- 1 cup
Milk -- ¼ cup
Cardamom -- 2 - 3 powdered
Ghee -- as required to grease the dish.
Prepare a heat proof dish greased with ghee.Add sugar and grated coconut in a heavy bottomed pan and keep it on the stove. Once the sugar starts to melt, add milk.On a medium flame and stir continuously. Add cardamom powder when it is half done.Stir till it thickens and bubbles at the edges of the pan. This is very important to notice this. If it is not done upto this stage, the burfi will be too soft.Optionally you can add few drops of desired colour or essence at this stage.Quickly transfer it to the prepared dish (might need some help at this stage) and let it cool. Before it is completely hard, cut it into desired shapes.Let it cool completely.Delicious burfi is ready.
