About the Recipes

Though you can use fresh/frozen coconut or desiccated coconut in all of my 3 recipes, the cook time changes considerably if you use one for the other. These recipes have not been tested with other kinds of coconut lượt thích copra, shredded coconut, coconut flakes etc.

Each of these vary in their sweetness levels so you need lớn adjust the sweetness. If you are a newbie & want to lớn try the recipe, scroll down khổng lồ “kinds of coconut” section, to know what these different kinds of coconut mean.

Here are the best combos that work well lớn make a coconut burfi:

Fresh/frozen coconut with whole milk is best. To lớn use desiccated coconut with whole milk, use more milk than you would use for fresh/frozen coconut, as desiccated coconut has no moisture of its own.

Desiccated coconut with condensed milk or with whole milk và mawa (any kind of mawa) works best. If you use fresh/frozen coconut with condensed milk, you will need lesser condensed milk and the cook time is slightly longer due khổng lồ the excess moisture in the coconut.
