Carrot Burfi - Burfi with carrots, coconut and milk powder - Easy Sweet for Diwali

Carrot Burfi is prepared with grated carrot, grated coconut, milk powder, sugar and ghee. This is similar to my mango coconut burfi but it is quicker than mango burfi.  The moisture in the mango pulp takes some time to get thick whereas in this carrot burfi it gets easily thick and perfect for kids birthday party and also for potlucks. If you use fresh, juicy carrots it will be easy to grate it finely. No need to grind the carrots. The milk powder gives a nice texture to the burfi and it also helps to give perfect consistency to cut the burfis. When it comes to burfi the sugar level is high when compared to other varieties.


The first step is to saute the grated carrots and coconut for a few minutes on medium heat to remove the raw smell of the carrots and the moisture from the coconut. Then you have to combine the milk powder and sugar. This burfi does not require any sugar syrup consistency, so you can start stirring the carrot coconut mixture on medium heat. You have to add ghee in regular intervals and stir until the mixture gets thick. It takes around 20 to 25 minutes to finish the entire process. In the final stage, when you roll the mixture it won't stick to your fingers. This is the perfect time to transfer the mixture to the greased plate. After 10 minutes, cut them into small pieces. As I had many preparation works for Diwali festival, I have totally forgotten to take the final pictures for this carrot burfi. These are the sample pictures taken for the step by step procedures. Soon I will try to do it again and update it.  Now let's see how to prepare these Carrot burfis with step by step instructions.
