Coconut Burfi/Easy Diwali Sweet

      Diwali is just few weeks away .While thinking of recipes for Diwali  easy recipes top the list .I got some coconut after  pooja at our house .Usually i grate the coconut and put them in freezer for later use .This time i want to try burfi from coconut(thenga burbi)my grandma makes and give it to me while i go to hostel .Burfi's can be stored for few days to weeks.
     This coconut burfi is soft and chewy not so hard .With rose essence it just awesome .You can omit adding of rose essence .Even bachelors can try this with store bought freezed coconut .If you are using freezed coconut place them in fridge the day before ,so that its stay soft when you make it .Otherwise it takes time to make this coconut barfi.
     It take sometime for the burfi's to cool down to hold its shape .To get a perfect shape of burfis switch off the stove when coconut and sugar comes to sticky consistency ,Press them  well together as well.Take the burfi's from greased plate when its completely cooled.To check ,take one if it still sticks to the greased plate leave it for some more time.
