Delicious Mango Coconut Burfi recipe with step-wise pictures, very easy to make at home! Instant Mango Fudge recipe to satiate sudden sweet cravings.
Last year, I made Mango Dessert series with back to back mango based recipes and this year, I have been missing mangoes like crazy. March and April went off in a whiz, with no mangoes in sight and entire May, I had to be off mangoes for health reasons. I had been sneaking in mangoes, with every chance I got. Recently, I got some really good organic Alphonso Mangoes and after savoring some as it is, I made this quick Mango Coconut Burfi – really delicious at every bite 🙂
There are a lot of Mango Fudge (Mango Coconut Burfi) recipes on the internet and you might ask whats so different about this recipe. It is really really simple – I used only those ingredients that are very common in any pantry and it still turns out pretty amazing! I just went ahead with proportions in my head and kept stirring the mixture until it was thick – I think this is best sweet recipe for both mango lovers as well as sweet lovers like me 🙂
This Mango Coconut Burfi has simple yet exotic ingredients – Milk, Alphonso Mango Puree, Fresh Coconut, Sugar, Cardamom Powder and Saffron (for that beautiful golden hue) I loved the flavor combinations and adding coconut to this Mango Fudge was a decision I made for good. Fresh coconut not only enhanced the flavor, it added an interesting texture to the mango burfi! Apart from coconut, I did add some fresh milk and milk powder too – to make the fudge rich. Do try this recipe before the mango season comes to an end.
