The addition of grated apples to coconut barfi makes it more nutritious


  • Large red apples 2
  • Castor sugar 2 cups
  • Fresh coconut, scraped 2 cups
  • Oil to grease
  • Pistachios, chopped a few


  • Peel the apples, remove the core and chop. Squeeze the juice of a lemon and mix so that the apple pieces do not get discoloured. Transfer them into a bowl.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan and once it gets heated add sugar and coconut and mix well. Add 1 tbsp water and mix again and continue to cook stirring continuously.
  • When the mixture begins to change colour add the apples and mix and cook. Add a little more water and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes. When the mixture begins to leaves the sides of the pan the barfi is ready.
  • Grease an aluminium barfi tray with a little oil. Transfer the apple mixture into it and spread evenly. Sprinkle pistachios on top evenly.
  • Let it cool down to room temperature. Keep the tray in the refrigerator to set for 3-4 hours.
