The Coconut Burfi recipe is one of the simplest Indian sweet recipes to prepare and a favorite among the kids.

It is made with very few ingredients that includes coconut mixed with sugar syrup flavored with cardamom (elaichi).

  • Fresh grated coconut – 1 cup
  • Green cardamoms – 3 nos (powdered)
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • All purpose flour (Maida) – 1 tbsp
  • Ghee – 2 tsp


  1. In a deep vessel or a pan on a low heat, take freshly grated coconut. Cook it for one minute stirring it continuously.
  2. Then add sugar and keep stirring frequently for 5 minutes.
  3. When the sugar melts and begins to boil, add 1 tbsp of All purpose flour (Maida).
  4. Mix the contents and then add cardamom powder. Keep stirring the mixture until it thickens.
  5. Add ghee and mix well.
  6. In about 10 to 15 minutes the mixture will thicken to a consistency where the sugar syrup is no longer clearly visible and cannot be separated from the coconut.
  7. Now move the contents into a large enough plate and spread the mixture such that the height is around 3/4th of an inch. Make sure when you spread the mixture it does not tear in between. It should all be in one piece.
  8. After a few minutes while it is still hot, cut into diamond or square shaped pieces with a sharp knife.
  9. Allow it to cool completely at which time each piece would have hardened and you can easily separate out the pieces and store them.
