Coconut Burfi

2 cups fresh grated coconut
1 cup whole milk
1 cup raw sugar (or white sugar)
2 tablespoon milk powder
3 drops rose flavouring
1/2 teaspoon crushed cardamom seeds

To a pan on medium heat with one cup of milk add sugar and cook until the sugar has melted.  When the sugar has melted add the milk powder.  Mix and remove the milk powder lumps that form as much as possible.  It is ok if a few small lumps remain.  Add the grated coconut and stir and cook until all of the liquid has evaporated and the contents leave the side of the pan and form a mass in the middle.
Takes about 15 to 20 minutes.  Turn the heat off add the rose flavor and crushed cardamom seed mix well and pour the contents onto a greased plate, flatten the top surface.  When it cool cut it into squares and serve.
