Coconut Barfi

Coconut Barfi is a popular Bengali sweet that we use to make during this festive season. It’s a very easy to make recipe and takes only a few minutes to prepare. You just only need two main ingredients for this barfi, i.e. coconut and sugar. I feel Durga Puja is incomplete without these delicious and juicy coconut barfis.

  • When the coconut mixture is ready, act very fast and transfer the mixture on the greased plate immediately, or the mixture will become hard.
  • Cut the barfis when the mixture is still warm, or it will be difficult to make pieces.
  • You can also store them in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
