This year is our first Diwali in our new home,so preparations have doubled.I doubt if I can keep up with posting sweet recipes here,but thought of sharing a very simple sweet which I used to make ages ago.
Coconut Barfi or Thenga Barfi is a sweet made with freshly scraped coconuts and sugar.Ideally the barfi should look pristine white with no brown spots,but some on I think the brown spots give the barfi more character,don't you think so?
Coconut Barfi | Thenga Barfi
Grated Coconut - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Cream - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Powdered sugar - 2 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
In a thick bottomed pan mix together coconut,
Cook on low flame for 15 minutes or till the barfi becomes slightly golden brown and comes together as a lump.
Mix in the powdered sugar.
Grease a pan with ghee and pour the coconut mix into it and level with the back of a spoon.
Let it set for 10-15 minutes and cut into desired shapes.
