Coconut Barfi | Nariyal Ke Barfi


Fresh Coconut Burfi / Coconut Fudge or fresh Nariyal burfi is a classic and traditional Indian sweet which is prepared during festivals and special occasions. The taste and the juices that emanate from the fresh coconut give the special richness to this delicacy. Whilst this recipe of mine shows step by step how to make it from fresh milk and fresh coconut, you can use desiccated coconut and condensed milk, to get a similar recipe in less that 10 minutes (see my recipe of Coconut Laddo).

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Serving: 6-7

Nariyal Burfi is ready to be served. 

Key Notes:

  1. Don’t overcook the mixture after it comes together otherwise the barfi will be chewy.
  2. You can skip adding colour to it.
  3. If you don’t have Fresh coconut, you can use market bought desiccated coconut. Just soak it in little milk for 1 hour and then follow the same recipe.
  4. You can use condensed milk, for quick recipe (of course taste of fresh is unbeatable).
