Two-layered coconut burfi is an easy recipe that requires only 4 ingredients and the taste is similar to Gujarati-style kopra pak. The traditional recipe involves the preparation of sugar syrup which can make things a little complicated but this recipe requires very less ingredients and is prepared within minutes for any occasion and celebration. To make this coconut burfi recipe more interesting, I have made them into two layers. You can make single-layered white burfi with this recipe, but the pink layer makes the burfi more interesting and fun.
This festival season do make this wonderful Indian Sweet and enjoy its mouth-watering and juicy taste along with friends and family!
