FRESH COCONUT FUDGE / COCONUT BARFI / KOPRA PAK

Fresh Coconut Fudge / Fresh Coconut Burfi/ Kopra Pak is a classic and traditional recipe of an Indian Sweet that is prepared during festivals or special occasions. The Sweets made from coconut are Delicious, Auspicious and can be used as offerings at festival rituals.

After Paryushan, this is my first post. Here i would love to wish Michhami Dukkadam to all my friends . It’s a way of asking forgiveness for all deeds done knowingly or unknowingly. This a very important part of this Religious festival of Jains.

Samvantsari – last day of Paryushan and Vinayak Chaturthi falls on same day. May Lord Ganesh fills your life and home with lots of Happiness and Prosperity .. Earlier i have also posted Topra pak with Desiccated Coconut, one can check that here.

I have prepared this Cute, white beauties on day of Ganesh Chaturthi.

It is important to use freshly grated coconut to make this sweet instead of using Frozen or Desiccated coconut. Taste, Texture and moisture level of fresh coconut adds the special richness to this sweet.

This is very simple , easy to make and handy sweets when guests are at home without. Mainly 2 ingredients used and ready in couple of minutes… What else we need..

One can store this sweet for long without refrigerator.

Notes:

I have not used Khoya (Evaporated Milk) .. one can use if want..

I have not added any color or flavour to the sweets, one can add. This measurement will yield 15-17 medium size pieces of the sweet.

I scrape the coconut in mixer grinder, one can use coconut scraper if available.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1+2/3 cups Fresh Coconut , scraped
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • Few Saffron Strands, soaked in warm milk
  • Almond Slivers (Optional)
  • Pistachio , slivers (Optional)

METHOD:

Wash and peel fresh coconut . Cut into small pieces. Now grind in mixer without adding anything. Grind nicely. Your Coconut Scrape is ready.

Make ready a greased plate and keep aside.

In a non stick pan take Ghee. Add Coconut and roast on medium flame for a minute. Then add milk and cook for more 2 minutes. Once mixture is dry enough without any moisture , we will add sugar. Mix and begin to heat on medium flame. When sugar starts melting add Cardamom Powder and keep stirring. Mixture will turn gooey and bubbly . Continuous stirring is must . After some time one can notice that mixture will begins to thicken and even bubbles will be gone. Keep stirring.

Cook till all bubbles vanish and mixture also starts to leave sides of the pan. Immediately pour this to a greased plate and level the top. Quickly add nuts and tuck them. It will be harden fast so after pouring be really quick.

Cut into desired shape once mixture cools down bit, not fully. If its cool down completely , it wont be easy to get perfect shape.

Store in a airtight jar. One can store this sweet for many days without keeping in refrigerator..

  3. I love festival time to make these delicious treats. Coconut burfi is one of my favorite and anytime I have freshly grated coconut, I make a batch of it. I don’t use milk in my recipe. I am sure that will add a different flavor to the burfi. I will try it sometime!
