Coconut Barfi

Preparation Method: 
  1. Heat sugar, milk, cream and coconut to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer.
  3. Cook until mixture becomes very thick and starts to leave the side of the pan, about 50 minutes.
  4. Transfer mixture to a buttered 8-inch square baking dish/tray. I lined the tray with aluminum foil and ghee'ed (new word alert!) the foil.
  5. Sprinkle with cardamom powder and nuts.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 8 hours.
  7. Cut into 1 inch diamonds or squares.

1 cup each: sugar, milk, whipping cream, unsweetened grated coconut 

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

2 tablespoons sliced pistachios or almonds
