Tried making a barfi for the first time. It came out delicious and required minimum effort. This is the most simple and easy to cook barfi recipe. The whole process got over in just about 20 minutes.


11/2 cups finely grated coconut
1 cup sugar
½ tsp cardamom powder
2 tsp ghee


Heat a pan in low flame and add the grated coconut and sugar. Stir well for about 5 minutes. Then add cardamom powder and ghee. Continue stirring till it forms a single mass. Transfer this to a greased tray and press slightly. When the mixture has set but still warm, cut it into desired pieces and allow it to cool completely. It will harden on cooling. Transfer the barfis to an air tight container. It has a shelf life of about 5 to 6 days.

Notes & Tips
  • Always remove the brown part from the coconut and use only the white part.
  • Instead of grating the coconut by hand, you can cut the coconut into small pieces and grind it in a mixer without adding water.
  • Cut the barfi into pieces when it is still warm because if it cools down completely it will become hard and the barfi will break when you cut it.
  • In case you cooked the barfi for too long it will become hard and difficult to eat. In this case, put it back into the pan, break the pieces and add little water. Stir well to break all the lumps and cook for a few minutes. When it starts forming a single mass, transfer to a greased tray and press lightly. Cut into pieces when it is still warm and allow to cool. This method will result in barfis having the same delicious taste but it will not be white in colour as you have cooked it twice.
