/* Coconut Burfi Sweet and Healthy - EAT SO WHAT!

Coconut Burfi Sweet and Healthy

This is my first blog in Food Category. I made Coconut Burfi this Rakshabandhan for my sister as this is her one of the favorites sweet. I also like Coconut burfi as it has nuts which are healthy. I am not a sweet tooth, I least prefer sweets but this was a special occasion so I decided to make it.

As I said in my previous blog How to Balance when…. how I substitute an unhealthy ingredient with healthy alternatives in any recipe. So in Coconut burfi, I replaced refined white sugar with Brown sugar, if you substitute it with Jaggery then it will be more beneficial for health and substituted normal unsalted butter with cow milk unsalted clarified butter which is simply ghee but made exclusively from cow milk cream at home. I think if you are health conscious but sweet tooth then coconut burfi is the best option you can go for without even second thought.

Health Benefit of Coconut Burfi:

Desiccated coconut: We all know coconut contains fat but healthy fat which is very essential for body function. It lowers the levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) and increases the level of good cholesterol or HDL, hence strengthen your arteries, and promote cardiovascular health. Other than that it is very good for skin, it helps in Better functioning of the brain. It contains a number of essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, manganese, copper, and selenium.

Cow Ghee (Unsalted clarified butter): As per Ayurved, cow Ghee is very very good for health. Cow ghee is full of essential nutrients, fatty acids, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidants, and antiviral properties It normalizes Vata and Pitta. Nourishes body. It is known as a brain tonic. Excellent for improving memory power and intelligence. Best for strengthening mental health. It is beneficial for curing thyroid dysfunction. It is used to heal wounds, chapped lips, and mouth ulcers. Cures insomnia. Best for lubrication of joint. But it should consume in moderation if you don’t want to put on weight.

Jaggery: Jaggery boosts immunity. One of the most well-known benefits of jaggery is its ability to purify the blood. Jaggery is one of the best natural cleansing agents for the body. It Prevents anemia. Controls blood pressure and prevents respiratory problems. Jaggery has a complex carbohydrate that gives energy to the body gradually and for a longer time therefore helps in preventing fatigue and weakness of the body.
