Kaju Katli or Cashewnut Burfi is one of the most loved Indian sweets. Rich and delicious, it is the most preferred sweet on any occasion.
- 250 gms of cashew
- 150 gms of sugar
- 7 tbsps of water
- 2 tbsps of ghee
- A pinch of saffron
Powder the cashewnuts finely. Heat the water and sugar in a thick bottomed pan. When the sugar has dissolved add the cashewnut powder and saffron and keep stirring till the whole mixture starts coming together. Add the ghee and remove the whole lump onto a plate. Allow to cool till you can handle it. Knead it well and place the lump on a greased plate. Place a butter paper over the lump and flatten it with a rolling pin to desired thickness say about 5 mm. ( I prefer mine thick) Remove the butter paper and allow the rolled Kaju katli mixture to cool thoroughly. Once it has cooled, cut the kaju katli into square or diamond shapes. Store in an air tight container.
