  1. Break the coconut and keep it in the freezer.After it has become hard put it in water so that the coconut meat comes out of the shell easily.Now remove the black part of the coconut using a peeler.Now you get white coconut all over.Cut into small pieces and grate it in a blender.Also add cashews to the coconut.This is the trick to get snow white coconut burfis i mentioned about in the beginning. Put the grated coconut and cashew mixture in a pan.

Notes

Add rose essence while switching off.This will give a unique taste.

Some people add roasted gram powder or rava,But i wanted pure white colour,so didn't add.
