For the final day of Week 2 of BM 76, am here with a quick and easy coconut burfi. Make it with freshly grated coconut or store bought frozen and grated coconut its for sure the burfi is going to turn tasty and yummy. I remember my mom used to make coconut ladoo either with sugar or jaggery, specially during festival season. Because that is when we used to have lots of coconuts at home, as we offer it to god. I remember mom grating the coconuts, me and my sisters used to add some sugar and eating as it is even before mom made some dessert with it. Those are the happiest and beautiful day of our childhood.
So this dish goes to 3rd dish under the theme " Mother's Day sweets". Dedicating this sweet to my mom and all the beautiful and wonderful mom's around the world. Here goes the recipe.....
