Coconut Burfi/ thengai burfi/ Seven Cup Burfi

   Coconut burfi can be done in different ways. When I was a kid, my mom used to make this sweet for my birthdays. This sweet brings me nostalgic feel. Being thousands of miles away, I am connecting with her by trying out her recipes. Another name for this sweet is seven cup burfi- The name comes from the fact that there are seven cups of ingredients.  


1 cup of fine rava/ sooji
1 cup of grated coconut
1 cup of cashew nuts (powdered)
1 cup of melted ghee
1 cup of milk
2 cups of sugar
pinch of saffron
4 pieces of cardamom
raisins for decoration


1.Mix the above ingredients in the following order, rava , coconut,  powdered cashew, ghee, milk and sugar in the heavy bottomed vessel.

2.Start stirring in the low flame to avoid any lump formation.

3.Keep stirring till the sweet starts to thicken. Towards the end, add the saffron soaked in 1/2 tbsp of milk and powdered cardamom.

4.Apply little ghee on the plate and transfer the sweet. Allow the sweet to cool and cut in to squares. 

5.Decorate with raisins.
