Ive tried similar kind of burfi only with coconut.It will be slightly soft and chewy.
This recipe is my chithi's recipe handed over to her by her MIL.It uses a combination of sooji/rava and coconut.The sooji gives a little hard texture to the burfi.
Sooji / Rava - 1 cup
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 3/4 cup or 2 cups if you want it to be sweeter
Ghee - 2 tablespoon
Powdered Cardamom - 2tsp
Grease a plate.
Slightly roast grated coconut and rava separately till i tbecomes slightly golden
In a thick bottomed vessel add the sugar and just enough water to cover the sugar.
Heat the mixture on high until it starts boiling.Reduce the heat and allow it to cook till you get one string consistency.
Now add the coconut and rava and keep on stirring for every 2 minutes on medium heat.
Once when the mixture starts leaving the pan,add the cardamom powder and 2 tablespoon of ghee.
Transfer the contents into the greased plate,level it with a flat bottomed cup and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
Cut into desired shapes
