Coconut Barfi/ Thengai Barfi

14:53 Niloufer Riyaz 12 Comments

Thengai or Coconut Barfi is a sure hit sweet in our home but Ive never succeeded in making a perfect one. Then one day I looked into this recipe in Kamala Boopathy's blog http://www.cookatease.com/. She gave picture by picture instructions which made me easy to do. Today I not only got  perfect barfi's but also a tasty one.
Usually I donot like sweets with coconut, but this is the only exception. We enjoyed every bite of the barfi n my hubby felt that the sugar was a little too much, so the next time Im going to reduce them a bit. You can use according to your taste,
