Coconut burfi is one of the best treats! You get chewy, soft, juicy desiccated coconut that’s perfectly rich, moist and sweetened with condensed milk. It is called nariyal barfi in Hindi language.
When short on time during the festive season, make this easy to make 10 minutes coconut burfi recipe that requires only 3 ingredients, plus garnish.
Coconut Burfi with Condensed Milk
These are one of my favorite, all-time favorite treats. This is my go-to quick-fix dessert. Last time I made coconut barfi during the Raksha Bandhan lunch (you might have seen it on my insta stories). Now again I made it for this Diwali festival.
They are perfect for parties because you can make a big batch with the same amount of time (just 10 minutes of active time). Plus, adults, children and all absolutely love them.
I mean, who doesn’t love quick desserts that get done in less than 15 minutes. That only means that you will get more time to spend with your family during the festive season. Plus, it also satisfies the sweet cravings.
Methods to make coconut barfi recipe:
- Traditional - it is made with fresh coconut and sugar. Here 1-string consistency of sugar syrup is required which can be easy to mess up. It is easy but can be tricky (not for beginners).
- Instant coconut burfi - This is the recipe I am sharing today. It is made with desiccated coconut and condensed milk. For the flavoring rose water is added and garnished with pistachios.
- Kopra pak - this is the Gujarati style of coconut barfi. It is made with fresh coconut, milk, sugar, and khoya.
I have shared another coconut-based burfi - mango coconut burfi
