A couple of months ago, my brother bought me a book A walk to Remember. I read about the book earliar and I knew its a sad story. I was hesistant initially but I acquiesced.
When I finished my book, I realised it was one of those books which one cant forget so soon.
The story is all about Jamie a 17 year high school student who was never famous in school. She carried her bible every where she went and she dies fighting cancer. She marries Landon, never in a thousand years would anyone think would fall in love with her.
Reading wasnt a hobby untill I started reading some quality novels. The saddest thing about reading a novel is that majority of the people aren't exposed to the extraordinary world of novels. I think.... !! Some dont have the patience of going through every word and sentence till the end while some dont know what to read.
And just like reading every word on a page and having all the time and patience, coconut burfi too conveys the same sense.
225 gms dry milk powder(khoya)
225 gms coconut (dry and ground)
1 tsp cardamom seeds (ground)
1 tbsp ghee
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/2 tsp almonds (grated)
Mix khoya and coconut in a non-stick pan and fry them lightly with ghee on a low heat.
Add cardamom till stir well fragrant.
Prepare one-string syrup by dissolving sugar in the water.
Now stir the coconut mixture into the syrup.
Spread the prepared evenly over the plate and allow it to cool.
Now with the knife, cut it into desired shapes.
Garnish with almonds or desired nuts and serve
