Burfi is an Indian and Pakistani sweet. It is generally heated until the milk solidifies and is then placed in molds of different shapes - diamond, square or sometimes round.
Coconut Burfi is a popular Indian sweet made of pure fresh coconut. It is easy to make and less expensive as it does not require much of ghee. This Burfi is made during Diwali "The Festival of Lights".
