Besan Burfi
Easy to Make Coconut Besan Burfi Recipe with step by step photos. Besan Ki Burfi was in my to do list, I have tasted Besan Burfi prepared by my friend. She makes Besan Ki Burfi for all special occasions at their house. But V doesn't like the authentic Besan Burfi with gram flour and lots of ghee. Hence I wanted to make Besan Burfi with some change and found this Coconut Besan Burfi recipe Here. This recipe was so simple and has our favorite coconut addition in the burfi. So immediately without any second thought tried it. The burfis turned out super good and Besan paired well with coconut and the burfis tasted so good and melts in mouth like Ghee Mysore Pak.

The original recipe uses milk to prepare sugar syrup but I used water.
