Coconut burfis are my alltime favourite.Wud love to munch on these anytime.But the sugar syrup will be a big headache for me always.So i was finding ways to get rid of this sugar syrup process.Saras, has posted a microwave versio.It was too good,I tasted it .So prepared a microwave version of coconut burfi.It came out really well.Here comes ,her version of burfi.I have increased the quantity of rava a bit than her recipe.Give it a try ,u will love it.I have used store bought coconut flakes.We can also use fresh cocout flakes also.
Coconut Flakes - 2 cups( Fresh or dessicated one, I used dessicated one)
Sugar - 1 1/2cups
water -3/4 cup
Rava - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1tsp
Salt - A pinch
Saffron - few (optional)
- Take Microwave safe bowl & add sugar, water and mix it.
- Keep this mixture in microwave for 10 minutes on high. Stir in between to bring sugar syrup into string consistency. ( First I kept it for 4 minutes & then for 3 minutes and again for 3 minutes & perfectly got the desired consistency.)
We can also use condensed milk,instead of sugar.But the cooking time will be more for that and the rava also increases.
