Try This Delicious Nutty Coconut Barfi


• 1 cup freshly grated coconut • ½ cup ground, blanched almonds • 1 cup sugar substitute • 1/3 cup desi ghee


Heat the ghee in a nonstick pan over low to medium heat. Add the almond and coconut mixture. Stir constantly to make sure it doesn’t burn and is well mixed.

When the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and forms a single mass, add the sugar substitute, and mix well. Grease a baking sheet with ghee and set it aside. When the mixture in the pan looks opaque and dry, it’s almost ready.

Turn the heat down to low and stir for a few more minutes. Transfer the mixture to the greased sheet or plate. Use your hands to mix the dough, then spread it out with a greased rolling pin until it’s 1/4 inch thick.

Smooth the surface if needed. Use a knife to cut the mixture into equal squares after it has partially cooled. Once it has fully cooled, use a flat spatula to separate the barfi pieces and store them in an airtight container.
