Coconut Barfi (Quick coconut bars)

I love sweets, one of my weakness. I need to eat something sweet after every meal I have and my cravings sometimes get very specific, and till the time I don’t eat what I crave it just won’t go away. My husband every-time on hearing “You know what I feel like eating” starts shaking his head saying “here we go again”

So yesterday I had a craving of eating something sweet with coconut in it, a coconut barfi or a coconut ladoo.Since it was late so I looked in the kitchen I had some dessicated coconut, condensed milk and which was perfect to make this amazing 20 Min 5 ingredients coconut barfi.

Normally fresh coconut is used for Barfi or dessicated coconut is soaked in milk for half hour then used. But I was little less on time and just used it without soaking and it came out pretty good

So here it goes,


  • Dessicated dry coconut – 100 Gms
  • Milk- 1-2 Cup
  • Condensed Milk – Half can (Approx 200 gms)
  • Ghee Or Unsalted butter – 2-3 spoons (I used Ghee)
  • Cardamom- 3-4


  1. In a pan add coconut ,1 cup milk and let it come to boil (Adjust more milk if coconut absorbs all the milk)
  2. Add in condensed milk and ghee and cook it on a medium heat, stirring regularly. It should be in Semi- Solid consistency right now (Adjust milk accordingly)
  3. Cook till the milk evaporates and the mix is not sticking to the pan (Approx 10-15 min)
  4. Add Cardomom powder and give it a mix
  5. Pour it on a greased dish and allow it to set
  6. Fresh and quick coconut barfi is ready to be served
