Recipe Notes

  • You can also use dry desiccated coconut for this recipe.
  • Regular milk can be replaced with coconut milk.
  • Don’t grind the coconut for very long, else it might release it’s milk. Grind for few seconds, stop and grind again. Repeat till you get a fine texture.
  • Don’t cook this over high flame else the coconut will turn dark in colour.
  • Before setting the barfi make sure the coconut mixture is dry, else it won’t set properly.
