Kaju Katli / Kaju Burfi

Kaju Katli also known as Kaju burfi is an Indian dessert made of Cashew nuts and sugar. Kaju Katli  has been in my to do list for a quite some time. Finally I made it for this Diwali. Diamond sweet is one of   my son's favorite sweet, yes " Diamond Sweet " that is what he calls it. The texture was't that smooth that we get in market but the taste was awesome. 

Typically, Cashew nuts are soaked in water overnight then ground it into paste and added to sugar syrup to make a smooth dough. Few people make it in different way, make cashew nuts powder and add to sugar syrup. Either ways you make the taste and texture matters. I have followed the 2nd method as I didn't have much time to prepare this for a potluck party. 

This recipe  goes to the final day of week 1, Blogging Marathon 81 under the theme " Diwali Savories and Sweets". Here goes the recipe......


Kaju / Cashew nut powder 1 1/2 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Water 1/2 cup
Butter / Ghee 1 tbsp
Edible Silver leaves  to garnish 


In a non stick pan add sugar and water to make syrup.
Cook till 2 string consistency.
Once you see 2 string consistency add ghee, mix well and switch off flame.
Now add cashew nut powder and mix well to get a smooth and sticky dough.
Grease a flat pan and transfer the dough to the tray.
Spread evenly and garnish with silver leaves.
Let rest for few minutes to cut into diamond shape pieces. 
Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 10 days.
