A traditional Indian sweet made with desiccated coconut, almonds and condensed milk! No boiling water and sugar or use of a sugar thermometer in this recipe!
Mould it into balls and roll in desiccated coconut for a nice presentation.
Accidently made these with ground almonds instead of flaked almonds but they still came out awesome so it's worth experimenting with both. Me and my family loved them! - 06 Jan 2017
My son brings these home from school every Christmas - the only difference is they add chopped figs as well. Delicious, and highly more-ish! - 28 Jul 2016
I liked this recipe. I made some alterations though, so I only gave it 4 stars. I used unsweetened coconut, and I added ginger, not cardamon. I made these to give away for Christmas, and my relatives do not like cardamon. I also melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, with a little bit of butter, and I dipped the square blocks of cut burfi into the melted chocolate, and I let them set on a rack to dry, one side at a time. They looked good, and tasted great. My relatives liked them a lot. Thanks for this recipe. - 05 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
