How to Make Khobra-Batatya Chivadi (Burfi)

  • Take a large, heavy bottom pan and add the milk and grated coconut.
  • Cook over a low flame while stirring occasionally.
  • When the milk thickens considerably, add the condensed milk, sugar, cashew nuts and cardamom powder.
  • Continue to cook stirring it from time to time till it is sticky enough to form a ball or when it leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Meanwhile, grease 2 cookie trays or large platters.
  • Remove the coconut mixture from the heat and spread it, while still hot, evenly across the tray to form a layer about 3/4 inch thick.
  • Even out the mixture with a spatula and allow it to cool.
  • When completely cool, use a knife or pizza to cut into diamonds.
