Nariyal Barfi:


Dussehra is the day we’ve been brought up to believe is when good triumphs over evil! Of course, such a day has to be celebrated with sweets.

Here’s a quick, slightly contemporary take on the Classic Nariyal Barfi you can make at home and impress your family and friends with.


Ingredients -


• 1 can condensed milk

• 150g shredded coconut

• 20g unsalted butter

• 30g coconut flakes

• In a preheated oven at 130 degrees, lightly roast the coconut flakes on an oven tray till they’re golden brown- set aside.


• Prepare a rectangle dish with butter paper and rub it with oil all over.


• In a saucepan, heat the condensed milk and the coconut shavings till the mixture doesn’t thicken and become glossy.


• After about 7-8 minutes on medium heat, the mixture will thicken and when you run a spatula at the bottom of the saucepan, the mixture will take a while to come together.


• Empty this mixture in the dish and spread the toasted coconut flakes on top and press them gently.


• Chill for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator and cut out into squares.
