Coconut Burfi Recipe

Sweet Squares Made From Fresh Coconut Cooked in Milk

Butter an 8" round cake or pie pan; set aside.
Cook together over medium heat:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup whole milk*
Simmer, stirring constantly, until the mixture makes a single thread when pinched between 2 fingers - about 226 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Then add:
2 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut (preferably fresh)*
1 1/2 teaspoons cadamom powder
pinch saffron-colored powder (opt. just for color)
Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Press the mixture into the buttered pan not quite to the edges and about 3/4" thick; let cool. Cut into 1 1/2" diamonds.
*A lower-fat milk can also be used, but the resulting mixture will be more crumbly. Fresh coconut is much better than dried in this recipe, but either form is acceptable.
