Basant Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day (Panchami) of the Maagh month of the Hindu calendar and marks the end of harsh winters or onset of the fresh and warmer spring. This year, welcome the spring season with rose and coconut burfi to add colour and sweetness to Vasant Panchami.

Transfer half of this mixture to a container or plate. Spread it out evenly to give square shape Add rose syrup and rose petals to the remaining half of the coconut mixture in the pan. Add 2 tbsp of desiccated coconut and stir well.
