This is simply amazing. A dessert, a sweet thing that has no GHEE but it can beautifully come out from the tray as crisp burfi. It has no maida or gram flour, but you can taste the deliciousness of a perfect burfi in your mouth. The day, when planning for this “coconut milk burfi”, I was skeptical about the end result. Wondering if it turns out like burfi or a peda or takes it’s place in disaster recipes of the year. But surprisingly I could get a perfect square shape in my first attempt itself. Let me pat my back for a second :). This dessert is beautifully called as “Amruta phala” and I have brought the recipe from a corner of Karnataka.
Well, the recipe is so simple that it can be wrapped in two sentences. It’s basically milk and coconut milk based sweet that has zero ghee in it. This factor fascinates most of the people who have zero tolerance to ghee based desserts. There are people who always have to count on calories before eating anything. So for all of you this no-ghee dessert is kind of boon.
Before you make your mind to prepare this stuff, let me warn you about the time. Amruta phala does require more time to cook and condense, so plan to be in kitchen for few extended minutes. You will right? Because the magic of coconut milk burfi is happening. Right?
Let me give you another option, if you love to eat “amruta phala” like a soft peda instead like a real square piece, then you can discontinue cooking when the milk condenses to porridge like consistency. And transfer that milk turned porridge over a tray, shape like peda when cools down. I loved both soft version and hard burfi version of amurta phala. Let me know what you like?
