I Love coconut. do you?

I love everything about coconut, so many ways to use it in food and health. healthiest option for cooking.
You know what it really scary to break fresh coconut and i had bad experience . so be careful!. 
I made coconut barfi from fresh coconut. but you can buy ready made dry coconut flakes too.






Ingredients:

  • Fresh grated coconut – 2 cups
  • Powdered Sugar – 1 ½ cups
  • Milk – 1 tablespoon or whipping cream 1 tablespoon
  • Ghee – 2 teaspoons
  • Saffron Strands (Kesar) – ¼ teaspoon
  • Cardamom Powder – ¼ teaspoon
  • Pistachios sliced – for garnishing 
  • Water – 1 ¼ cup
  • 1/2 cup khoya (mava)

Method:
  • Grease 8"x 8 " pan with ghee and keep it aside.
  • Take saffron and 1 tablespoon milk in a small bowl. Heat it in microwave for few seconds and then mix. So it gives nice natural yellow color. Keep it aside 
  •  Take coconut, sugar and milk in a pan.
  • Mix well and turn on the heat on medium.
  •  Cook it for 15-17 minutes while stirring continuously.
  • Cook it till all liquid evaporates and mixture leaves the sides.
  • Then add saffron-milk mixture, cardamom powder and khoya.
  •  Mix well and cook it for 10 minutes while stirring continuously. 
  • Transfer to greased pan and spread it evenly.
  • Top it up with sliced almonds or pistachios. 
  •  Let it cool completely. Then divide it into equal pieces.
