Coconut Burfi with Gulkand

Coconut burfi with gulkand 1

I made this Coconut burfi with Gulkand on diwali but for some reason or other I was not able to post the recipe. The burfi is so juicy and rich in flavor (because of Gulkand of course) that you can not eat just one piece. It has a very cool effect on your throat and very pleasant to taste buds.ย Coconut burfi with gulkand 2

This Diwali Hubby asked me to make different dishes i.e. regular recipe with a twist. So I added Gulkand to my regular Nariyal Ladoo recipe to make this burfi and I also made burfi with apple pie filling. Didnโ€™t click any photographs of apple pie burfi so can not share ๐Ÿ™

Anyways Back to Burfi, this recipe is a keeper. Ratio of burada, milk and sugar is so perfect that I do not even taste it before serving to check if it is okay. This recipe has never let me down.

Addition of Gulkand definitely adds a twist to the Burfi and that too a pleasant one. Gulkand also has many health benefits because of its cooling properties, it improves digestion, it is a powerful antioxidant, reduces acidity and anxiety. It is considered an ayurvedic tonic.

That is why whenever we eat Gulkand we get this feel good type of feeling. Donโ€™t we ย ๐Ÿ™‚

ย How to make Coconut Burfi with Gulkand

cooking time: around 30 minutes

Note: you can half or double the recipe as per your wish just keep the ratio same.

4 cups milk
3 cups nariyal burada/dessicated coconut powder
1 cup sugar

2 tbsp Gulkand

To make Coconut Burfi with Gulkand

Process is same as that of making Nariyal Ladoos


Mix all the burada/nariyal powder, sugar and milk in a wide non stick pan and keep on high flame stirring in between. After 4-5 minutes reduce the flame to low and let it cook for around 25- 30 minutes on low flame.

final stage

Mixture should become thick and milk should not be visible at all.

Let it cool for some time. Divide the mixture in two parts.
Grease the utensil lightly with ghee in which you want to set burfi. Or you can line it with parchment paper/clean wrap as it makes handling and cutting of burfi easy.

first layer

Spread half of the burfi mixture in a thick layer.

Spread Gulkand over it uniformly. As gulkand is quite strong in flavor I have spread a thin layer of it.ย Spread rest of the burfi mixture over gulkand.

Keep it in fridge for about an hour to set the burfi.ย Cut into desired shape.
Keep the burfi in fridge and it tastes good as long as 1-2 week. ย It tastes best when fresh so it is better to consume it in first week.
