Coconut Burfi

Coconut Burfi is a common, economical and tasty sweet in Tamil Nadu. In olden days in Madurai we used to see a lot of vendors selling very tasty Coconut Burfis with less coconut and more of sugar. In those days I used to wonder as to how they make it so very good and tasty. When I grew up and got interested in cooking, I found for myself that it is so easy and there are so many variations in making it more tasty and nutritious. 

Coconut Burfi is a common sweet which can be prepared easily in just less than an hour and can be stored for about a week or even ten days. Coconut Burfi is prepared with just Coconut and Sugar or with milk also.
