Coconut Paneer Burfee

This is an extremely simple and very delicious burfee recipe. It can be eaten while fasting. Yesterday I made this burfee and it was a hit.  Try this and I am sure you will enjoy too.


Milk Powder                1/2 Cup
Coconut Powder         1/2 Cup
Paneer                        1/4 Cup
Sugar                          1/4 Cup
Desi Ghee/
Clarified Butter        1/2 Tsp
Almonds, Pistachio   1-2 Tsp
Milk                           2 Tbsp

Switch on the fire. Add ghee and coconut powder in a non stick pan.  Cook it for 2-3 minutes or till the coconut powder changed its color and a nice aroma came in. Add milk and sugar. Cook for another 2 to three minutes on slow fire. Add milk powder and paneer. Mix very well and stir continuously. 

Cook until it stops sticking to the side of the pan and looks like a dough. Switch off the fire. Remove and transferred to a greased plate. Garnish with chopped pistachio and almonds. Let it be cool. Cut into desired shape and serve.
