Orange and Coconut Burfi

3 Sep

A burfi is an Indian sweet made with condensed milk and sugar. The word burfi comes from the Persian word for snow, as burfi is served cold and looks a bit like it! Inspired by seasonal flavours and an Indian summer, we’ve added some coconut, almonds, orange and cardamom to flavour it. Delicious!


  • 225g desiccated coconut
  • 400g condensed sweetened milk
  • 70g flaked almonds
  • 1 tablespoon ground cardamom
  • Zest of 1-2 oranges

Combine the coconut, orange zest and condensed milk in a saucepan and cook on a medium heat, stirring constantly. Once the mixture starts to boil add the flaked almonds and cardamom then remove from the heat.

Pour the mixture into a greased baking tray and leave in the refrigerator to cool for 1 hour. Once cooled cut into snack-sized squares.
