Coconut Burfi

Okay, okay, let's get all the childish jokes out of the way first. Yes, today's candy is called "burfi," and yes, it's sometimes spelled "barfi." I'll wait...done? Done now? Good.

The term burfi refers to a number of different sweets in Indian cuisine. Sometimes it's made with carrots, sometimes coconut, sometimes neither. This version is an easy cream-based candy called Coconut Burfi. It has lots of flavor from ground coconut and walnuts, and is subtly scented with ground cardamom. If you've made old-fashioned fudge before, the kind that crumbles a little when you cut it, you'll be familiar with the texture of this burfi. It's homey and comforting and a nice accompaniment to a mug of afternoon tea.
