Usually fresh grated coconut is used for making this burfis, though dessicated coconut flakes can be used very well. However if you want to prepare this ultimate burfis with freshly grated coconut, dont forget to dry roast your freshly grated coconuts to bring some beautiful flavor to this burfis. Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Vegan Sweets' as theme. Obviously these burfis goes for this theme, adding grounded cashew powder gives a super nutty texture to this simple sweet and its one of the best way to sneak cashews if anyone at home hates cashew in their diet.

Adding cashew to coconut burfi would make it more delicious. What an innovative idea. Looks like a cross between burfi and kaju kathli..

I've always made burfi with fresh coconut. Toasting the coconut must have added a great depth of flavor to the sweet.
