CASHEW AND COCONUT BURFI RECIPE| EASY SWEETS RECIPES

Coconut -cashew burfi 
 After a break i am again to celebrate New Year 2011, with a sweet recipe. We had a great vacation with our family and  to add more joy we had a bloggers meet in Chennai and it was nice to fellow bloggers in person.
This recipe i learnt from my MIL . She welcomes us with this sweet  whenever we go to India. I wanted to try this on my own this time and i made this under her supervision and it came out really well.You can make this sweet for Diwali too. In our home, this cashew coconut burfi is the first one which will be prepared for Diwali.

  24. Thank you for the recipe. However, I have to say, when I made this, 2 cups of sugar was way too much. I would suggest using 1/2 to 2/4 cup. Also, the recipe calls for 1.5 tbsp flour. Looks a lit more in your photo?
