Another mango recipe for this season – it is Mango coconut Burfi.

Mango and coconut flavors go well together. I really love these tropical flavors. But dear husband hate coconut in any dish whether it’s savory or sweet. But he actually likes this burfi. First he said it looks appetizing and has very vibrant color. I was like yea I know. Then he asks can I try now? I said ‘NO’ it has to cool down and set. After few hours, he asks again and I said – why are you so excited you don’t like coconut? He said – the color attracts me to eat it. After having a bite, he enjoys burfi. He was about to eat the second piece, I was like wait let me take the photos first. While taking photos he was on top of my head and keeps saying please hurry… So here I am with no so good photos.

This mango burfi has perfect balance flavor of mangoes and coconut. This is not the kind of burfi that sets pretty hard like mawa burfi. It has coconut as well as moisture from mango puree. So It will hold the burfi shape but still soft and moist, juicy just like kopra pak.

I regret that I made half batch and only 6 pieces. Before I thought it will be only for me why make full batch. I should make this again for him may be next week. Below recipe ingredients are for 12 pieces of burfi.

I have used pistachios on top, you can use almonds, cashews or simply just skip it. Alternately you can mix the nuts into the burfi mixture while adding cardamom powder. And so you can use raisins as well.

I am saying again and again that use the best quality mangoes like Alphonso or Kesar to get the best out of it. The flavors and taste will be much much better that random mango type. I will keep repeating myself until you email me and say ‘Yea Kanan, I got it now.’

    Hi Kanan,

    As I am working lady, I noted down the recipe to make it during weekends. My daughter who is 12 years old had seen the recipe and had prepared the mango coconut barfi during weekdays. When I went home, I was surprised. The barfi was so good and tasty. She had prepared something for the first time and it turned out so good.

    Thanks once again for the recipe.

    Wonderful recipe. Just wanted to make sure you use here canned mango pulp,right ? Or is it fresh mango pulp ?

    • says

      Yes I have used canned mango pulp. But fresh will work fine as well. If using fresh mango pulp then you might need to add little more sugar. It purely depends on the sweetness of your mangoes.

    • says

      Not sure about the coconut powder. texture will be different because one it is in powder form and second it has less moisture than fresh or frozen.
