Coconut Burfi

Being navarathri season, i had lots of coconut shredding in the fridge. I decided to do burfi out of it, though it is not good for health. I made a small quantity for our tastebuds.

Coconut - 1cup
Rawa (sooji) - 1/2cup
Milk - 1 cup
Cardamom - 2nos
Ghee - 2-3tsp
Cashews - 8nos
Sugar - 1.1/2cup

1. Grind coconut and cardomom in the blender without water.
2. In a heated kadai add 1tsp of ghee and roast the rawa. Once it is golden brown, switch off and then add the coconut powder and mix well. After 10min add the milk to it and keep it aside for 1 hour.
3. Take a plate and grease it with ghee.
4. In a kadai add 1 1/2 cup sugar and very little water and when it boils nicely add the coconut mixture and mix well. After some time, the mixture will start to leave the ends and form a ball. Add a 1-2tsp of ghee mix thoroughly and pour it into the greased plate. After 5min cut it into diamond shapes.
