Kaju katli also known as kaju ki barfi is a very popular Indian dessert and is widely eaten in all parts of the country. It is made with simple ingredients and yet is a delectable treat to be served and too much liked by the kids. As its main ingredient is cashews, so it is a little high in price in the markets. So, I just thought of preparing it at home. The home-made one is just similar in taste to the one we bought from the market and yes!!! truly pure without any contamination and made with all the hygiene.

Ingredients:
Cashews/kaju: 1 cup (200gms)
Sugar: 1/2 cup/100gms
Water: 1/2 cup/50ml
Ghee/clarified butter: for greasingwhatsapp-image-2018-11-01-at-5-39-40-pm.jpeg

Method:
1. Take cashews and grind them in a grinder. Grind the cashews in a pulse mode and in small batches so that the oil of cashews should not be released. Also do not grind too much and keep them little grainy.WhatsApp Image 2018-11-01 at 5.39.40 PM(1)
2. Now heat a pan and and sugar and water to it. Let the sugar get completely dissolved and it should just reach to the formation of one-string consistency. We do not reach the strings only a little consistency.


3. As it reaches to the consistency, add the cashew powder and mix it thoroughly on a low flame.


4. Continuously stir it until all the mixture comes together and leaves the sides of the pan.


5. Now take a greased butter paper and put the cashew dough on it.WhatsApp Image 2018-11-01 at 5.39.40 PM(11)
6. Cover it with another greased butter paper and then with the help of a rolling pin roll it gently to a considerable thickness.


7. Now keep the cashew roti for 5 minutes aside so that it should cool down.
8. After 5 minutes, With a sharp knife cut the cashew burfi into diamond shapes.


9. You can garnish it with silver wark(optional).

Notes:
CONTINUOUS STIRRING IS VERY IMPORTANT, OTHERWISE, THE MIXTURE WILL STICK TO THE PAN AND THUS, WILL BE BURNT.
