My grandma never uses cashews in this sweet and its the same with me. This time I have not used any cashews.

Notes

I have not followed any string consistency,but if you are doing that way then make 1 string consistency and then add the coconut. This type of coconut burfis are served white,so grate and use only the white part. I have missed adding cashews,if adding toast it golden with ghee separately and then add to this burfi. Don’t miss stirring the burfi when in high flame or else it will burn.
