Coconut Barfi Recipe 

Barfi is a sweet confection from the Indian subcontinent. Plain barfi is made from condensed milk, cooked with sugar until it solidifies. The many varieties of  barfi include besan barfi made with gram flour, kaaju barfi made with cashews, and pista barfi made with ground pistachios. The name is derived from the Persian word barf which means “snow”, since barfi is similar to ice or snow in appearance.

Though it originated in Persia, barfi was introduced to India and Pakistan during the Mughal Empire in the 16th century. The confection became very popular in South Asia, where it is now commonly served at festivals such as Holi and Diwali.

Coconut barfi is a delicious sweet that is made with freshly grated coconut and condensed milk. Coconut barfi is very popular home made Indian sweet which is easy to prepare. Barfi is often flavored with fruit such as mango or coconut or nuts such as cashew  and spices such as cardamom or rose water. They are typically cut into square, diamond or round shapes. Different types of barfi vary greatly in their color and texture.
