Coconut Barfi


Since the climate is tropical, south of India is conducive to grow coconut (a lot of it!) – especially the coast. It is one of the ingredients that is so versatile that it is used in most of the dishes in one form or the other.

This is a traditional South Indian dessert. As I kid, I had a sweet-tooth and my mum loved cooking sweet dishes. When you mix coconut and sugar together, it transforms you to a different world altogether. This is what Coconut Barfi did to me. In Bangalore, we call it as ‘Kobbari Mithai’ – literally translating to ‘Coconut Sweet’.

Barfi is a square / rectangular shaped dessert. Coconut Barfi has a rustic touch to it and that is how it is presented traditionally at homes. Do I get the taste I get back in India – probably not. The coconut there is much fresher. Ghee (Clarified butter) has a completely different taste in India – especially the ones that are homemade. But, I offer you the closest taste that is possible out of the ingredients available in the UK.

The dish contains Coconut, Sugar, Nuts & Cardamom.
