kopra pak recipe | Gujarati topra pak | nariyal ki barfi | coconut barfi | with 26 amazing images.

kopra pak with fresh coconut is a famous Gujarati sweet which is really pleasing to the taste buds. Learn how to make kopra pak with fresh coconut .

Full-fat milk and coconut cooked together give this nariyal ki barfi an intense flavour and amazing, coarse texture, while cardamom casts a pleasant spell on our palate!

To make kopra pak, heat the ghee in a deep pan, sauté cardamom seeds on a medium flame for a few seconds. Add the coconut and sauté on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes. Add the milk and sugar, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 45 minutes. Transfer the mixture into a greased thali and spread it evenly using a flat ladle. Garnish with pistachios and cool for 1 hour. Cut into square pieces and serve.

With its rich flavour and irresistible texture, this traditional Gujarati topra pak tends to be a bit addictive because our taste buds are sure to yearn for more of the magical experience.

An all-time favourite with people of all ages, the kopra pak can be stored in an airtight container for 4-5 days.

Tips and notes for making perfect kopra pak. 1. Use freshly grated coconut only. Stale coconut might lend an off taste to this mithai. 2. Remember to scrape the sides of the pan occasionally, else the mixture will stick on the sides and burn. 3. Cool completely before cutting into pieces, else it will break. 4. Cut Gujarati topra paak into square pieces using a sharp knife or pizza cutter. If the Thengai Burfi is soft and you are not able to cut into pieces, it means we have to cook the coconut burfi for some more time. Simply reheat the burfi mixture and keep cooking on low flame till all the moisture is evaporated and then pour the kopra pak again in a greased thali. If the topra pak starts to crumble, it means we have overcooked the mixture. Do not panic, just reheat the coconut mixture along with 2 tablespoons of milk or water.
