Soft and delectable COCONUT MAWA BURFI.Diwali ended with this sweet dish. Gave it to all the neighbors and they loved it. Mehnat Safal :-) :-). After almost 7 years I was celebrating Diwali in my country and trust me I was so damn excited. I made sure to prepare full-fledged karawah( Diwali sweets and snacks). My husband was like bass karoo aur kitna banaugi. So finally I put a full stop with this awesome Coconut burfi which we all relished a lot. 

This one is a very straightforward and fast recipe. So if you want to make a big lot or want to prepare a hassle free dessert  go for it.

Let's get started: 



  • 1/2 cup  milk powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut 
  • 1/3  cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom powder (choti elaichi powder) Add more as per taste.
  • Pinch of Saffron (kesar) ( add more as per taste)


  • Grease a plate or thali with ghee and place aside.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottom non stick pan or kadhai.
  • Sim the gas and add milk. 
  • Now slowly start adding milk powder. Keep stirring till it mixes well with milk. You can switch off the flame while mixing milk powder with milk. 
  • Once everything is mixed well increase the flame to medium.
  • Cook the mixture for a minute. 
  • Add desiccated coconut and stir well. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes on a low flame.
  • Add sugar and mix well. Let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes on a low flame. 
  • The mixture will start thickening.Add elachi powder and saffron. Keep stirring.
  • Once the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan switch off the flame. 
  • Transfer it to the greased plate and spread  evenly with a spoon. 
  • Let it cool down completely and then cut into square or diamond shape. 
  • To ease the process of taking out burfi  I put the burfi plate in fridge for an hour.
  • Use a flat spatula to take out the burfi. Put some kesar tipki to decorate the burfi. Store them in the fridge and they will stay fresh for 4 to 5 days. 

Hope you will give it a try. Do share your feedback.
