Microwave Coconut Burfi

This is one of the fastest recipes I came up with the other day. It was Dushera morning, DH not in town, had to get one kid on the bus and drop another one to daycare & also reach office on time… But I wanted to make something quick to offer to God for the morning puja, so pulled out condensed milk and started to put things together. It turned out nice and when I took it over to friend’s place that weekend, was asked for recipes by one and all.

Prep Time: 2 min. | Cooking Time: 10 ~ 12 min.
  • Desiccated coconut powder – 1 cup
  • Mawa/ Khoya/  Milk powder – 1 ½ cup
  • Condensed Milk / Milkmaid – 1 can
  • Cardamom powder – ½ tsp.
  • Almond flakes – ½ cup
Method of Preparation:
~ Pour condensed milk in a microwavable bowl. Add coconut powder, milk powder & cardamom powder and give it a stir.
~ Microwave high for 4 minutes.
~ Take out the dish (be careful, the dish will be really hot at this point) and gently mix everything.
~ Crush the almond flakes in hand and mix it in.
~ Microwave for another 3 or 4 minutes at 1 minute interval. Each time mix it thoroughly. You can see that it all starts to come together.
~ Grease your hand with ghee
~ Alternatively, you can grease a plate and flatten the mix in it and cut in burfi shapes.
~ Delicious burfi’s are ready in minutes. Seriously I took more time to write this post than do burfi. J
