Koya Coconut Burfi Recipe - Nariyal Ki Barfi With Khoya Recipe - Dessert Recipes - Coconut recipes

Making any Indian sweet is a project at least for me. Not just how to do it but also how I am going to serve it. As Sweet is not anyone's favourite in our family except for few items.However any savoury snacks will disappear in no time. When I saw this at Chitra's space I was so tempted to try it out as it is very simple & it is with coconut (Yeah now a days coconut is super food right?). I had some Desiccated coconut & Koya in the fridge. So I thought I will try immediately. Thanks Chitra for this simple Sweet/ Dessert. I have followed full recipe from here
Mawa / Koya - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Desiccated coconut - 1.5 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Ghee - 1 teaspoon (for greasing the plate)
Nuts of your choice - 1 tablespoon (I have used Almonds)
Saffron - few Threads
Water - 3/4 cup
Food Color - a pinch (optional)


Grease plate with ghee and keep it aside. Heat 3/4 cup water with saffron, Food color, cardamom powder. Add Crumbled koya/ Mawa and mix well (without any lumps). Let it boil for a min
