Ingredients Required to Make Coconut Barfi

Unsalted butter or ghee – 2 tablespoon
Grated coconut – 100 gms
Finely chopped almonds or pistachios for garnishing – 2 tablespoon
How to Make Barfi
1.Take a heavy base pan or kadai. Pour milk and let it boil.
2.Once milk gets boiled, reduce the flame and add ghee.
3.Add milk powder in small batches and whisk it properly so that no lumps are formed. Constantly stir milk and add whole milk powder slowly.
4.Then add grated coconut to the mixture and cook on medium flame by constantly stirring the milk , so that it doesn’t stick to the pan. Cook it until it turns dense in consistency.
5. Switch off the flame, grease a plate with ghee. Pour the mixture in the plate and refrigerate the sweet for 1 hour. Spread chopped almonds or pistachios.
6 Once the mixture is hardened then you can cut the Barfi pieces in whatever shape you want. I used Cookie Cutter as a mold to make different shapes of Barfi.
