Kayi (Coconut) Burfi

Ingredients:
6 cups finely grated Coconut / Kayi Turi
1.5 cups Milk
4.5 - 5 cups Sugar
6 Cardamom
2 tsp Ghee

Recipe:
Finely grate the coconut and keep it aside.

Put ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel. Add finely grated coconut and fry them for about 1-2 mins in medium/low flame.

Add milk, sugar and mix them well.

Keep stirring the mixture until almost all the water content gets evaporated. Add the mashed cardamom powder and mix them well.

Keep stirring this mixture in medium/low flame until it starts leaving from the bottom and becomes frothy in texture as shown in the picture below.

Put this into a ghee applied plate and gently tap the plate to spread the mixture evenly as shown in the picture below.

After a minute, cut it into diamond/square shaped pieces as shown in the picture below.

Remove the pieces and serve. Store them in an airtight container. For longer shelf life store them in a refrigerator.
