1. Grate the coconut without any black part, so that you can get pure white coconut burfi.
2. Add 1 cup sugar, if you want more sweetness.

3. If the burfi as come out very hard and dry immediately add some more water and mix them well while keeping on the flame.
4. If the burfi is too soggy and the cut shapes are not coming well, immediately heat it for while again.
4. I have used 240 ml cup, so that I got 12 burfi.
