Milk -- 2 liters (around 8 cups)
Lemon juice -- 2-3 tablespoons
Sugar -- 2 1/2 cups (more if u like it sweet)
Vanilla pod -- \1 / cocoa powder -- 2 teaspoon -- for flavoring (optional)
Coconut -- 4-5 tablespoons ( grated )
Boil milk and simmer it for 5-10 minutes. Turn off the heat.
Add lemon juice to the milk once it is a bit cool. Now reheat the milk, which will curdle.
Continue to boil the milk on low flame stirring once in 2-3 minutes until almost all the water evaporates.
Now add the sugar and the vanilla or cocoa flavoring and coconut.
Keep stirring the mixture until it thickens and starts leaving the bottom of the pan.
When the mixture starts rolling around in the pan like a ball turn off the heat and spread it in a greased plate. Parchment paper and rolling pin can be used to give burfi a smooth look. Cut in to any shape of your liking.
Cool it to room temperature and serve.
