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.

  • 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.
