Carrot Coconut Burfi is a little twist to our conventional coconut burfi. Just adding carrots to the coconut not only enhances the flavour but also makes this unique and appetizing. Sugary sweets are always calorie rich. But once a while we can have this delicious burfi. Especially for festivals like Diwali, this is one of the unique treat to your family and friends.

  1. Grease a tray with ghee and set it aside
  2. In a pan, add the ghee. Add grated coconut and carrot and saute in ghee for 4-5 minutes till the raw smell of the carrot goes off and you get a nice aroma.  Take this aside
  3. In another pan, add sugar and water. Allow the sugar to get dissolved. Add cardamom Powder 
  4. Keep stirring the sugar syrup till the syrup gets thicken up and forms a one string consistency. If you take a drop of syrup and rub between your thumb and index finger, then a string should form, this is the right consistency
  5. Once the one-string consistency is formed, add the carrot-coconut mixture and start stirring
  6. Initially the burfi mixture will look like so watery. Keep stirring, till it gets thicken up and doesn't stick to the sides of the pan

  8. Store the delicious carrot Coconut Burfi in an air-tight container and enjoy the sweet!
