Hi every one...I hope all of you remember me....this time its been long long long time I haven't updated my blog. The reason behind is i was bit busy with my other activities (Henna and face painting and candles painting)..There are lot of recipes waiting in my draft...so now I decided to re-start again....

I would like to start with a sweet recipe as today is New year eve.....lets welcome the new year with is very easy and yummy coconut burfi recipe...

Desiccated coconut(medium)- 300 gm or fresh grated coconut
Sugar - 250 gm
water 50 ml
milk - 250 ml
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp [optional]
a big plate greased with ghee(clarified butter)

How to prepare:

Take a heavy bottomed vessel, add water and sugar and milk on medium low flame allow the sugar to dissolve and come to a boil. Stir it and allow the syrup to thicken. Let the sugar syrup cook and thicken till it reaches 1 string consistency. Test the syrup by using your thumb and index finger and touch the sugar syrup and as your stretch the syrup, it should form a threads. This takes approx 12-15 mins.
Immediately at this stage add the Desiccated coconut or grated coconut, cardamom powder and stir. Stir at regular intervals till the mixture appears thick and leaves the sides of the vessel. This could take about 10 mins (if you are using fresh grated coconut it will take more time may be 15 to 18 mins)then turn off heat.
Immediately pour the mixture on to a greased plate and spread out evenly with a spatula. Allow to cool and slightly harden. Cut into desired shapes and cool completely.

Once it is cool down completely take it out from the plate and store in an airtight container.

Now come to the recipe..this is almost the similar recipe of dinner rolls which I prepared and posted last time....with slight changes ..but it was more tastier than last time so I thought of sharing the recipe will you all.Here we go.....

Bread Flour 1 1/2 cups(I have use store bought bread flour with seeds)

Chopped green olive 10


Take luke warm milk in a big bowl add butter, oil,sugar, salt and Active dry Yeast.Stir it properly until everything mixed well. cover the bowl with a lid and keep aside for 15 min to get the yeast proven.

Once yeast is done mix chopped olive and yogurt to this, stir properly.Now add the the flour slowly and mix it to make dough.Keep on kneading for nearly 5 minutes until the dough is elastic and smooth.
Apply oil to your palm take the dough in your palm and fold from all the edges bring in to middle to make a big ball shape.
Now place this dough ball in a well oiled bowl and cover with a cling wrap until double in size(in a warm place).

Once the dough is doubled take out from the bowl and punch down air and press it.Divide dough into around 8 parts, and make different shapes from each part.(or you can keep as like dough balls)

Spry the oil on the baking tray and keep all the shaped dough in the lined baking tray.Now again cover it and keep aside for 20-25 minutes in a warm place.

Preheat oven to 350 c / gas mark 4.
Once the balls risen brush all of them with oil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Remove from oven apply milk and oil if needed and allow it to cool.Serve immediately or store in airtight box.
