Madam, not to use any ghee or oil while frying coconut? Coconut and Milkmaid burns otherwise...

You have to roast in low flame. If you want you can add some ghee while roasting.

Dear sir /madam I think u forget to add sugar in this recepie how Much of sugar I should use.

Hi Sadik, The condensed milk (milkmaid) used here is sweetened. This will be sufficient and no sugar is needed.

Hi, My daughter and I have just made your recipe for a school project. How long will the Burfi keep for and I have assumed that it would need to be kept in a fridge or is that not the case?
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (February 10, 2014)
It will stay good at room temperature for 1 day. If you intent to keep it longer and fresher, refrigerate it. It stays good in the fridge for a week.

Dear Sir/Madam

I think you forgot to mention sugar in your recipe of Coconut Barfi.
Can you please tell me how much I have to use to make it sweet.

Hi Faitaz, The condensed milk that we use here is sweetened and is enough to sweeten the burfi... try it and give ur feedback..
Person Sagar   (September 15, 2013)
I think condensed milk is quite sweet that's why sugar is not required
