Coconut /thengai Barfi/fudge - diwali sweets recipe

coconut burfi Now I feel more and more confident each time I make barfi ,though I do feel a little nervous judging the consistency when the barfi sets. It came right this time too. I made this on the janmashtami day. Actually, a lot of delicacies are made on this day. It includes appam, murruku,thattai,seedai, aval and many others. I could not make anything more than appam and aval and of course the barfi. I couldn't take pictures of the appam and aval as I made them just before the pooja and then I did not have time later that day to do it.
However I could take pictures of the barfi. Here's how I made the fudge.

Ingredients-
Grated coconut- 2cups (Pl. remove the brown portion thoroughly to get nice white beautiful ones. I did not do it properly.)
Sugar- 1 cup
Milk- 1/2cup
Cardamom powder-1tsp
Ghee- 2tsp

Method-
Add ghee in a thick bottomed vessel. Add the grated coconut and keep stirring till all the moisture is gone. Then add the milk, sugar and cardamom powder and keep on stirring till you get a thick mass and starts leaving the sides. Spread it on a greased plate. Flatten it well with knife. Allow it to cool a little and then cut them into pieces when it is still warm.
Alternatively, grind together coconut,milk and sugar to a smooth paste.Then put in the pan and stir till thickens and follow the above procedure.

I am sending this barfis to Purva and Priti who are hosting the festive food event.
