•Your quick, easy and tasty Coconut Barfi is ready!
•You can store it in air tight container for up to 2 weeks.
•Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste.
•Cook on a medium flame otherwise the coconut will not get cooked properly or may get burnt.
•If you want pure white barfi then scrape off the brown part of coconut before grating.
•I scraped off the brown part gave it a quick go in the mixer.
•I avoid using a grater as it takes a lot of effort and time.
•You can garnish the barfi with your choice of dry fruits like almonds, pistachios etc.
