Indian Cooking Recipe : Coconut Burfi
3 cups coconut gratings
3 cups sugar
4 tsp ghee
3 cardamom pods
Grind coconut gratings with cashewnut bits, without adding water.
Mix sugar with ½ cup of water in a vessel and heat till syrup is formed that can be drawn into strings.
Add the ground mixture to the syrup and turn over constantly till the blend thickens a bit.
Then add 2 tsps ghee and continue turning over till it forms a lump. Remove from flame.
Flatten the blend on a wooden board, smeared with ghee, evenly to ¾” thickness.

Separate the pieces and store in a container, when cool.
