Nariyal ki Barfi


Nariyal ki barfi/ Coconut Barfi  is a very prominent homemade sweet which is easy to prepare. Fresh coconut cooked in milk with cardamom flavored sugar syrup makes it rich & delicious. I learnt to make this sweet dish from my Marathi neighbor aunty. To make this recipe easier, I will suggest selecting moderate dry coconut rather than fresh coconut. Let us start with the recipe.




  • Grated Coconut – 4 cups
  • Milk – 3/4 cup
  • Sugar – 3 cups
  • Green Cardamom (ilaichi) – 6 nos (powdered)
  • Ghee – 3 tsp.


  • Heat a kadai & add 3 tsp of ghee.
  • Add grated coconut to it & sauté on medium flame continuously till coconut turns slight brown.
  • Then add milk to it & mix well till the milk gets absorbed fully.
  • Now add sugar & stir continuously.
  • Stir continuously till the mixture becomes a little dry and begins to leave the sides of kadai.
  • Low the flame & add the powdered ilaichi & mix well.
  • Grease a tray with ghee. Pour the mixture in the tray & spread evenly.
  • Cool & cut into pieces & serve.
