Carrot Burfi - Easy Diwali Sweets

Diwali is almost here. People would be busy shopping for new clothes. Deciding what sweets and snacks to prepare. My mother usually starts deciding a week ahead as to what sweets and snacks to prepare. She will meticulously plan and prepare a good variety. Of course I have not taken to her, I am very lazy and always look for a easy way out. 
If you are looking for a easy sweet yet, delicious and also gives good quantity, then this one is for you. It is really simple with very basic ingredients and gives a good number of pieces. I learnt this from my aunt, who makes awesome sweets. I had been wanting to post it last Diwali itself, but blame it on my laziness, it took a full year for this to appear on the blog.

What you'll need
  1. Grated Carrot - 1 cup, tightly packed
  2. Cashew Nuts - 1 cup
  3. Besan/Kadalai Maavu - 1 cup
  4. Coconut - 1 cup
  5. Ghee - 1 cup
  6. Milk - 1 cup
  7. Sugar - 3 cup
  1. Grease a plate lightly with ghee and set aside.
  2. Grind the cashewnuts along with grated carrots, coconut and milk.
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed kadai, add the ghee, once it starts heating up add the kadalai maavu and fry for 3 to 4 minute
  4. Now add the sugar and the ground paste and start stirring on low to medium heat.
  5. Keep stirring taking care not to burn the contents, you will see some bubbles on the sides
  6. After about 10 to 15 minutes, the whole mixture will start leaving the sides and become as a whole mass like a ball
  7. At this stage, quickly, transfer to the greased plate and smoothen the top with a greased flat bottomed cup (davara).
  8. Let it cool for a couple of minutes, and then mark the pieces.
  9. Let it cool completely before removing the pieces.
  1. If you feel the burfis are not setting properly on cooling, put back the whole thing in the kadai and stir for some more time.
