Coconut Burfi - Microwave version

by - January 25, 2011

Coconut burfi is a old traditional sweets with less ingredients which has snow white appearance and melt softly in mouth. Usually My Mom used to make this burfi on stovetop, I followed the same. while browsing Prema's Thaligai page, I found easiest way in making coconut burfi where beginners too wont go wrong. Thanks Prema for this lovely recipe.


Coconut Flakes - 2 cups( Fresh or dessicated one, I used dessicated one)
Sugar - 1 1/2cups
water -3/4 cup
Rava - 2tbsp
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1tsp
Salt - A pinch
Saffron - few (optional)


If you are using fresh coconut flakes, Microwave it for 2 ~3minutes to dry it completely & make sure to scrap white portion of the coconut.

  • Take Microwave safe bowl & add sugar, water and mix it.
  • Keep this mixture in microwave for 10 minutes on high. Stir in between to bring sugar syrup into string consistency. ( First I kept it for 4 minutes & then for 3 minutes and again for 3 minutes & perfectly got the desired consistency.)
  • Add coconut flakes,  Rava, Ghee, Cardamom powder & salt to the syrup and mixwell.
  • Keep this mixture again in microwave for 2 minutes & stir in between. ( After 2 minutes, I felt my Burfi mixture is liquid, so I add extra Rava & microwave it for another 3 minutes.)
  • Mean while greas a plate, & pour the coconut burfi mixture to it & spread it into equal thickeness.
  • Allow it to cool & cut it into desired shape.
  • Take it out without breaking the burfi & store it in air tight container.
