A mithai that is famous and well-loved all over India, the Coconut Barfi can now be prepared easily in the microwave oven.

No need to sweat over the consistency of the sugar syrup or any such complications. Just follow the simple instructions, and very soon you will have a mouth-watering sweet, with the rich texture and flavour of coconut and khoya tinged with the intense aroma of saffron.

In order to get the perfect colour and texture, make sure you scrape the coconut very finely, working on only the white portions and stopping as soon as you reach the brown crust, so you get pure white scrapings.

Quickly whip up a sweet dish in the microwave oven during festivals like Diwali , Holi , Raksha Bandhan etc.

i am not a huge fan of sweets with coconut but i really liked this one. It has the perfect sweetness. The texture of the barfi is obviously slight different from what is made on the stove but it was really good.
