Coconut burfi has always been my favourite since my childhood, the ones made with sugar actually.It was surely prepared for me during any festivals and I used to rightfully demand for it during any occasion also. Its ages now I had this sweet. I have also posted two versions of this sweet in my space.
I have seen the coconut burfis with jaggery in many blogs. I am not really sure I have ever had this.So I decided to give it a try. I made a small batch yesterday evening. It actually tasted nice , so I thought of posting it here.It was delicious and infact I was worried if it would be over before I manage to take some photos in the morning.But whatever said, the ones with sugar are the best according to me!! Try this for a change.

Coconut burfi with jaggery - Diwali recipes
Ghee to grease on the plate
Grind the grated coconut in a blender till it is finely ground.
Combine with the jaggery.
Heat a Kadai/pan(preferably a non stick one). Place the coconut jaggery mixture in it.
The jaggery melts and stir to mix well with coconut. Add the cardamom powder.Keep stirring till the entire mixture comes together and starts leaving the sides of the pan.
Remove from flame and spread it on a greased plate. Allow it to set, but still soft enough to cut them into your desired shape.
Alternatively , you can even shape them into balls. Let the mixture cool down a little when you remove from flame. When the heat is bearable, shape them into balls.
Garnish with bits of cashews or almonds.
