Kaju Katli or cashew burfi is a hot favorite with everyone alike.

Before trying making it at home, I had never imagined it was so simple to make. We would always buy it from a local sweet shop, since all of us are so fond of it.

Here is a simple badam katli or badam burfi recipe for you.

Remember, almonds benefit health in more ways than one, unlike cashews that raise bad cholesterol and fats.

  • When it starts boiling & bubbling up, keep stirring.
  • Switch off the flame once the syrup reaches one string consistency.
