Recipe - Khopra Pak (Coconut/ Nariyal Burfi)



Khopra Pak (Coconut Burfi)- 10 Simple Steps

Khopra Pak

India is known to be the country of festivals and sweets enhance festivity. Sweets are also an integral part of tasty food if you invite someone over lunch or dinner or simply planning to make something special at home. Khopra Pak is such a mouth watering traditional Indian sweet, very easy to make that too with only a few ingredients. I am sharing here my method of preparing Khopra Pak at home and add magic to your food and mood.
 
Ingredients-
  • 2 cups grated fresh coconut
  • 1 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Khoya (Mawa)     
  • 1/2 cup Milk                                                         
  • Sliced Pistachios & Almonds (For Garnishing)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom (Elaichi) powder



Method-

  1. In a non-stick pan, on Medium heat, roast Coconut until you get a nice aroma. Do not brown.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat. Take the coconut out.
  3. Now add the ghee to the pan and then add khoya and roast the mawa/khoya (Roast till it turns light brown, burfi becomes tastier and can be stored for longer duration). 
  4. Add grated coconut to it and mix well .
  5. Now add sugar into this and Stir until the sugar dissolves. (You can adjust sweetness as per your taste)
  6. Add 1/2 a cup of milk and stir continuously, add cardamom powder and mix well
  7. Let the mixture cook for few more minutes and then remove from the heat.
  8. Take a tray and line with the parchment paper or grease with ghee and pour the mixture on the plate, spread it evenly.
  9. Garnish it with Sliced Pistachios & Almonds.Cut in to pieces while it is still warm into desired shape.
  10. Keep it aside for cooling. After 2 hours, you will see, the Coconut burfis has solidified. Run the knife again and take out the pieces into a serving plate.


Khopra pak is ready to be served now. Serve and get praised for a tasty delight at your convenience!

Note:
  • You can store it in air-tight container in refrigerator for days.
  • I have used homemade khoya that I made on sim flame to get this color but you can use store brought too.
  • Keep stirring the mixture while cooking to keep from sticking.
