Keep the bread crumbs soaked in milk for about 10-15 minutes.  Heat a pan on low flame.  Add grated coconut and sugar.  Mix well.


Keep stirring on low flame.  The sugar will start melting and the mixture will become little watery.  Once the sugar has melted completely, add the soaked bread crumbs.  Mix well.


Keep stirring the entire mixture.  Add ghee and keep stirring again.  The mixture will have a glossy look.


Keep cooking on a low flame by stirring continuously.  Once the mixture starts thickening a bit,  add cardamom powder, saffron strings, chopped cashewnuts and raisins.  Mix well.  Continue stirring till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.


Pour the mixture to a greased tray and spread it evenly.  Allow it to cool down. Keep the barfis in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes for setting.  Then cut into desired shapes.  Store in an airtight container.


Garnish with chopped cashewnuts and serve as a dessert or evening snack.



Freshly grated coconut gives good taste to the burfi.  But you can also use dessicated coconut.

You can also add few drops of rose essence for flavour.

Barfis stays good at room temperature for upto 2 days and in the refrigerator for a week.

Add grated carrot along with bread crumbs for making it more healthier.
