Vegan Richa's 'Vegan Diwali Sweets' E-Book Review

Vegan Richa's Coconut Burfi
Recipe type: Traditional Diwali Treat
Cuisine: Indian
Makes 8-10 balls. Easily doubled. Allergy Information: Dairy, Egg, Corn, Soy, Yeast free, Vegan. Can be made nut, gluten free
  • ½ cup Semolina flour (or Brown rice flour for Glutenfree)
  • ½ cup dry Coconut flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut oil (optional. Omit to make Oil-free)
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped cashew pieces (optional. Omit to make nut-free)
  • a pinch of salt
  • Sugar Syrup:
  • ½ cup ground raw sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • ⅛-1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  1. In a large pan, dry roast the semolina on medium-low heat for 6-8 minutes until the color changes and it gets fragrant.
  2. Using a blender/processor, blend the coconut flakes to make coarse coconut flour. Add coconut flour, coconut oil, salt and cashew pieces to the pan. Mix well and roast for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, in another pan, make the sugar syrup.
  3. Add all syrup ingredients and bring to a boil on medium heat. Continue to heat at medium low until one thread consistency.
  4. Add the hot sugar syrup to the roasting dry ingredients and mix well to form a lumpy mixture. (Best result when both contents are hot)
  5. Take off heat. Press immediately into parchment lined or greased baking pan (I used an 8 by 4 inch pan.)
  6. Cut into squares when still warm. The bars will harden as they cool.
  7. Break into pieces when cool. Store in airtight container for upto a week.
