COCONUT BURFI

Photobucket
Coconut …… We Indians believe and use coconut in many auspicious occasions and cooking too. In South Indian cooking we use coconut a lot as chutneys, or as a masala for gravy s. coconut well known as naarikela fhalam in sanskit and naariyal in hindi, Kobbari kaya in Telugu is high in fiber and saturated fatty acids. And also very rich in B vitamin and Iron too. We make many sweets with coconut in that list this coconut burfi is one of my all time favorite.and here I go with the recipe…….
