coconut carrot burfi

Here is a simple sweet called coconut carrot burfi

For coconut burfi: 

coconut grated 1 cup 
milk 1 cup 
sugar 3/4 to 1 cup 

Now, for carrot burfi... 

carrot grated 1 cup 
milk 1/2 cup plus 1/2 cup 
sugar 1/2 cup 

Heat a vanali (sauce pan ) add the mixture of coconut, milk and sugar. Keep stirring until it becomes very thick. For the sweetness, 3/4 cup is enough; but, if it comes out separately, have to add the remaining 1/4 cup(3/4 plus 1/4). Final result will come like a ball in the center which is the right time to pour onto the greased plate. Dont disturb it for some time. 

Wash the vanali and heat the same. Add 2 tsp of ghee with carrot, saute them for 2 or 3 mts. Pour 1/2 cup of milk and when it all absorbed, check whether the carrot is cooked or not. If not, add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk and stirring. It will be done before the milk got absorbed. Wait till the carrot absorbs all milk. Now, time to pour sugar. 

Keep stirring till it forms like a ball in the center just like with coconut burfi. Once the ball is formed, pour the mixture on top of the coconut burfi and level it accordingly so that they both should be equal in size. When it is cold, cut down together. 

Now, you get a 2 in 1 sweet with double colors and double taste. This is such a nice sweet where the kids will enjoy and also no ghee in it. Adding ghee or caradamom powder and nuts is upto you. 

You can put carrot mixture at the bottom, and pour the coconut burfi on the top which will give the same taste.
