2 cups freshly grated or desiccated coconut (grate only the white part)
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp or cardamom powder
3 tbsp Suncore Foods® Emerald Pandan Leaf Powder whisked with 1-2 tsp water
2 tbsp ghee or clarified butter
1. Grease a pan or plate with little ghee and set aside.
2. In a large pan preferably non-stick, add the grated coconut, condensed milk, and sugar. Keep it on low to medium flame and stir well. Keep stirring the mixture till it dries up for about 7- 10 mins. Now add the ghee, Suncore Foods® Emerald Pandan Leaf Powder mixture, and vanilla extract and cook for about five mins till the mixture forms together like a dough. You can test whether the mixture is ready by taking a small amount and forming a ball. If you can form a ball then you are ready to remove the mixture from the heat.
3. Transfer the mixture onto the greased plate and flatten the top with the spatula. Allow the barfi to set completely outside or in the refrigerator before slicing. Enjoy!
