Cashew Burfi / Kaju Katli

One of the simple but yummiest sweet. Always on demand.

Cashew Powder - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Water -1/2 cup
Ghee - 1-2 sp Optional

Warm up the cashews for a minute or so in a hot tava / or in the MW and grind to powder.
(Over powdering/over heating will bring out oil from cashew and it tends to form lumps)

In a tava, boil water and sugar, bring it to one string consistency.

Switch off the flame, swiftly add the cashew powder and give a good mix. Adding couple of spoons of ghee at this stage is optional. (If a piece of this is dropped in water, you should be able to make a soft ball)

Pour it into a greased plate. (Use the backside of the plate if u want to use the rolling pin)

Use a rolling pin / spatula to even out the surface and bring it to the required thickness.

Leave it for 5-7 mins, cut into pieces.

I too use the same ratio and method but for one change. I don't warm the cashews before powdering. Will try it the next time. The pieces have come out perfectly.
