Coconut Fudge | Thenga Burfi

Coconut Fudge(Thenga Burfi) is a very nutty chewy fudge(burfi) that  has predominantly coconut flavor.The cashews add the crunchy bites.This is a very simple burfi recipe and so anyone can please their sweet tooth.It hardly takes few minutes to put together.Enjoy making this simple yet elegant sweet at home to surprise untimely guests or just like that !!


Ingredients
dry coconut/shredded coconut 1 cup
sugar 3/4 cup
water 1/4-1/2 (refer notes)
cardamom 3-4
cashews broken 1tbsp
ghee 2tbsp


Method
-Heat ghee in a non stick pan and fry the broken cashew pieces slightly browned.Remove the cashews along with ghee in a plate.
-Heat water and sugar in the same non stick pan.Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves,bubbles and then reaches one thread consistency.
-Add the shredded coconut,ghee,fried cashews and cardamom powder.Mix well.


-Transfer it into a ghee smeared plate and flatten it with a spoon /offset spatula.Draw lines to cut in square pieces when leukwarm.
-Cool completely and serve or store in air tight containers.


Servings ~ 10 square pieces

NOTES
* I have mentioned 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup water because if you use shredded coconut then 1/4 cup water is required.If you are using dry dessicated coconut then add 1/2 cup water as it is too dry.I have used dry dessicated coconut.
* If you're using shredded coconut then try to leave out the brown portion when scraping as it will not give a pure white color.
* You can pulse the shredded coconut once or twice to blend with the sugar completely.
