Kaju Katli / Kaju Burfi / Kaju Barfi / Cashew Burfi Recipe

Today I am sharing with you guys the recipe for one of the most popular Indian sweets, Kaju Katli or Kaju Burfi. It’s basically a fudge made of cashews (cashew=kaju in Hindi). Basically it used to be that expensive sweet that everyone was crazy about and I never cared enough for it. For me its simple to make homemade kaju katli.

If we talk about the recipe, it appears to very simple with only 3 main ingredients – cashews, water and sugar. However I will not say that it’s super simple to make. Don’t worry I am not trying to scare you guys, of course I want you guys to try it this for any occasion. But what I want to emphasize is that even if you don’t get it right in the 1st try, don’t give up. I am confident that with practice you will become and expert making Kaju Katli at home and then you would never want to buy one from the market!

This indian sweet recipe is the most economical in terms of calories and complexity of preparation compared to other indian sweets. This barfi can be easily prepared in 15 minutes without much fuss and effort. Moreover, this yummy sweet does not require ghee unlike other traditional indian sweets. In this recipe i have not used silver vark to garnish the barfi, but you can add it if you like so. adding silver vark would not enhance the taste but it looks very beautiful.
