Kaju Katari is one of my favorite sweets and not only mine it is a favorite of many people because of its delicious taste. In Diwali, Kaju katli is seen in almost everyone’s house. People gift Kaju katli to their relatives and friends on Diwali. Altogether I must say Diwali has a good connection with Kaju katli so why not take a quick look at the below-mentioned Kaju katli recipe.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon readymade ghee
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 4 inches silver vark
  • 1 teaspoon powdered green cardamom
Cooking Instructions
  1. Step 1 Grind cashews to a fine powder
    • To make this traditional sweet at home, you need to begin with preparing the cashew nut powder.
    • Take 1 1/2 cup cashew nuts and blend them using a grinder, make sure you don't grind them too much as the cashews might release the oil, which can make the powder coarse.
    • Then using a sieve, extract the fine powder and keep it aside.
  2. Step 2 Prepare the sugar & cashew powder mixture
    • In the meantime, heat a pan over medium flame and add water along with sugar. Keep stirring till the sugar starts dissolving.
    • Once the blend starts boiling, reduce the flame, and add the fine cashew nut powder. Keep stirring and make sure the blend is smooth and has a slightly thick consistency.
    • If you are fond of ghee, add some ghee to this mixture, this will add a nice taste and aroma to this dish.
    • Keep stirring and add cardamom powder. Once this mixture is thick enough, turn off the flame and keep it aside.
  3. Step 3 Knead the Kaju dough & apply the silver varq
    • Transfer the Kaju katli mixture to a bowl and knead it into a fine smooth dough. Make sure that the Kaju katli dough is smooth and crack-free.
    • Take a tray and grease it with ghee. Then transfer the sweet dough and flatten it using a rolling pin.
    • Apply the silver varq and let it set for some time.
  4. Step 4 Cut into diamonds and indulge!
    • Now cut the Kaju katli in the classic diamond shape and impress your loved ones with this delicious sweet. Note: To accentuate the taste, you can also add rose water while making the kaju katli blend. This will also give your barfis a nice aroma.
    • If you want to make vegan kaju katli, feel free to use coconut oil instead of ghee.
    • If you want to make a healthy variant of kaju barfi, replace the sugar with sugar-free or stevia.
    • Bring the sugar syrup to a rolling boil and then add cashew powder for best results.
