Last week in between our regular chitchat I got this recipe from my friend Vidhya. The recipe came over phone from Chennai to her house and from there to me! :)
Original recipe called for fresh grated coconut, but I was not having the patience to get the fresh coconut, started off with dry coconut powder. Instead of elaichi I added a few drops of Rose essence. The outcome was delicious! :)
Dessicated coconut powder-1/2cup
Rose essence-few drops
Few cashews to garnish
Combine the coconut powder,sugar and milk in a bowl,mix it well and keep aside for an hour.
Fry the cashews in ghee and keep aside.
Pour the mixture in a sauce pan and cook on medium heat.
Keep stirring the mixture continuously without burning. After a 5-6minutes, at one stage the mixture will become thick and start leaving the pan.
Add the rose essence & fried and broken cashews in the burfi mixture,mix it and pour it in a greased tray. With a greased spatula, smoothen the top and let it cool.
Cut the burfis into desired shape when it is warm. Garnish with the fried cashews. You can take out the pieces once the burfi cools completely.
Burfi's tasted great with a mild rose flavor and cashews. Enjoy them! :)
