Two Coloured Coconut Burfi Recipe Card


Hindi: nariyal
Coastal cuisine of India loves the coconut. Be it Goan or Malwani, Karnatak, Tamilian or from Kerala, the taste of coconut reigns supreme. Think about a rich fish curry and try making it obliterating the coconut! It will pass off as a fake. Very correctly termed as the ‘plant of life,’ each and every part of the coconut plant is useful in one or the other way.

Ingredients for Two Coloured Coconut Burfi Recipe

  • Coconut scraped 2 medium

  • Mawa 100 grams

  • Ghee for greasing

  • Sugar 2 cups

  • Milk 2 tablespoons

  • Saffron (kesar) soaked in milk a few strands

  • Green cardamom powder 1/4 teaspoon

  • Silver warq 2 leaves


Step 1

Heat a pan and sauté scraped coconut and khoya in it on low heat. When the mixture is lightly browned remove and keep aside.

Step 2

Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready. Heat together sugar and one and half cups of water to make a syrup.

Step 3

When it begins to boil add a tablespoon of milk. When the scum rises to top remove it with a spoon. This will clarify the sugar syrup.

Step 4

Further boil it till you get a one string consistency syrup. Add coconut mixture to the sugar syrup gradually, stirring continuously.

Step 5

When the mixture is semi solid remove from heat and divide into two equal portions. Add green cardamom powder to one portion and mix well.

Step 6

Spread it on the greased plate and smoothen the top. Add saffron soaked in milk to the second portion and mix well.

Step 7

Spread this portion over the portion already spread on the greased plate and smoothen the top. Let it cool for a couple of minutes.

Step 8

Spread the silver varq on top and cut into diamond shapes. Separate the pieces when completely cooled and serve.
