hmm... i wasn't sure about this. i made this on a whim last night - though again, i had only 1/2 a cup of coconut milk powder. i must have done something wrong - probably didn't boil the water long enough since i didnt know what one thread consistency is .. so when i poured it all out & cooled it etc, it didn't have the consistency of barfi. it was really sticky so the best i could do was scrape it off my pan and roll it into tiny balls and told my toddler it was candy - and he loves it. it does taste like coconut candies we would have as kids - melts in the mouth, although too sweet for my taste. but my son loves it. thanks charishma.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour water in a pot.
  2. Add sugar and allow it to come to boil till the mixture has one thread consistency.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour coconut milk powder into this mixture and mix thoroughly and quickly.
  5. Spoon out the mixture into a greased tray.
  6. While the burfi mixture is still warm, cut it into pieces with a sharp knife. Otherwise, let it cool and then break into pieces. The choice is yours. I prefer to do it while it is still warm.
  7. Store in an airtight container for upto a week but I am sure it won't last that long because its quite yum and will be gone in the belly soon :).
  8. Enjoy!
