Carrot Burfi , Diwali special

This burfi is the first sweet I  prepared for this Diwali . The minute I came across this sweet in Raks Kitchen I prepared it immediately . I made two batches of the same.The first batch was slightly grainy in texture because the grated coconut was little coarse and I feel I overcooked tad bit . For the second batch I slightly ground the coconut for few spurts . But both the batches were superhit . Very easy to prepare and the recipe is a keeper . Happy Diwali in advance dear readers !
