Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh grated coconut
  • 1 cup gram flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1.5 cup ghee

Method:

  1. Grate the coconut, use the finely grated one for this.
  2. Take a thick bottom pan and mix all the ingredients except salt.
  3. Heat it on a low flame, keep stirring, as it will easily get burnt.
  4. Grease a plate with a little ghee.
  5.  Let cook for fifteen to twenty minutes. It becomes a thick porous mass with bubbles all over.
  6. Sprinkle a little salt and mix well.
  7. Spread it on the greased plate.
  8. Make incisions after some time.
  9. Do not remove them immediately.

    A delicious looking barfi, have heard of it but not tried it out as yet. Why did you increase the ghee? Is it because it doesn’t set well ?
