Almond Coconut Burfi | Easy & Delicious Indian Sweet

Coconut almond burfi is a delicious Indian sweet that combines the flavors of coconut and almonds. “Burfi” refers to a fudge-like sweet in Indian cuisine, a variety of ground nuts and flour can be used for making burfi.

Burfi is a popular sweet in North India & is sold in all bakeries. Barfis are one of the sweets served during festivals & special occasions. Making homemade burfi is not that hard & we will be able to adjust the amount of sweet & ghee based on our liking.

One of my favorite burfis is with coconut & ground almonds, I enjoy the bite of the nutty crunchy coconut along with the rich almonds. Absolutely delicious sweet that can be made effortlessly with minimal ingredients.
