Since childhood I have always been a great fan of Coconut. As a kid, I used to wait for my father to bring the coconut for having fresh coconut water. And then mother would open it for the fresh Malai (cream). Sometimes it used to have white fresh coconut itself. And Coconut sweets, Oh my God, I have always been in love with them and the relation equation is still the same. My share is : More than half of whatever Nariyal sweets are available at home. I didnt know the nariyal sweets can be easily made at home till I learnt it from my mother-in-law. Again, this recipe is dedicated to my mother-in-law who gave me a chance to learn from her and here I am..Sharing this special recipe with the world..
On special occasions like Janmashtami, navratri, etc we make the Coconut Burfi. Nariyal is rich in fat, fibre, iron, manganese (good for bones), carbohydrates, proteins. No wonder its high in fat and high in calories but it has good fat for heart health. Along with that, it does has saturated fat so people with heart issues are recommended to follow doctor’s advice on its consumption. Moderate consumption is a always a safe bet. People are preferring coconut milk and coconut oil over other similar products. If eaten in moderation, it may actually result in weight-loss. The reason is simple.. It is rich in fibre and makes us full for longer .. So no more hunger pangs.
There are several things that can be made using Nariyal. We may make Fresh coconut burfi, dried coconut burfi, Nariyal chutney, grated nariyal in curd, using it as a coating for baked or fried foods,adding to desserts like Halwa, making coconut milk soup (Coconut Milk Soup) and a lot more. My recipe is made using dried coconut. It simple and not many ingredients are required. Infact, I just like decided to make it for this Navratri. Thanks to sister as she had gifted us Nariyal on Bhai Dhooj. And I just had to start the show.
So Here is the time tested and amazing recipe of Coconut Burfi. Dont forget to share your experience with me..
