Coconut-atta burfi with jaggery

Fresh coconut is used in most of our curries and also to decorate some of the salads and few side dishes as well. I have earlier uploaded the recipe coconut burfi with sugar, and today I would like to put up coconut burfi with jaggery in combination with wheat atta. This is an age old recipe, yet easy and tasty. Here it is:

What you need to have:

1. Fresh grated coconut – 1 and 1/2 cup

2. Wheat atta – 1/2 cup

3. Grated jaggery  – 1 and  1/2 cup

4. Pure ghee – 4-5 Teaspoons

5. Cardamom 5-6

6. Cashews and Raisins – A handful

Ingredients of coconut burfi

What you do with what you have:

1. Grate coconut, chop jaggery as well and keep it aside.

2. Place a skillet with 4 teaspoons of pure ghee on low- medium flame.  When the oil is hot, add wheat atta and stir in continuously till you get a pleasant aroma. Be careful while roasting and make sure it does not get burnt.
