Kaju Katli (Cashew Fudge)

kaju katli

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.

Preparation

  • Grind cashew & make a fine powder. Make sure it does not become a paste. It should remain coarse. You can grind half cashew first and then the next lot.
  • Simultaneously, make sugar syrup, with water and sugar. Bring the sugar syrup to a boil on low flame. 
  • When it starts boiling & bubbling up, keep stirring.
  • Switch off the flame once the syrup reaches one string consistency.

  • Mix well and switch on the flame. Set to low flame. 
  • Keep stirring. 
  • The mixture will start to thicken, forming a mass.
  • Keep stirring and it will form like a dough in about 7-8 minutes. 
  • Apply little water on fingers.
  • Take little cashew dough and roll between fingers. If it does not stick, that means the dough is ready.
  • Turn off the flame and transfer dough to a plate. Knead it well for 1 minute. It will be hot so make sure you do not burn your hands.
  • If the mixture gets dry, add 1/2 tsp of ghee.
  • Make sure you knead it to a smooth dough.
  • Take a greased plate or butter paper/ aluminum foil. 
  • Grease aluminum foil with ghee.
  • Roll the cashew dough into thin layers with a greased rolling pin.
