Kaju Barfi, which literally translates to ‘slice of cashews’, is made using cashew nuts which are soaked in water for a long period of time and then ground to make a paste. This paste is then mixed with ghee, milk, sugar, kesar and other standard sweet ingredients. Once the mixture is cooked, it is spread on huge steel and brass platters and allowed to cool, before it is cut into bite-sized and diamond-shaped sweets that are just irresistible – we bet you can’t stop after eating just one piece ! It’s easy-to-make and can be prepared very quickly as well. But a lot of people are not aware of just how easy it is to make Kaju katli at home and most of us end up buying these barfis from the market.

When you buy sweets from the market, they often tend to be made from substandard, even adulterated ingredients like poor quality milk and khoya. This is why these store-bought sweets can be unhealthy for your loved ones. Additionally, these sweets are not made to order but are made in bulk and sometimes customers are sold, old and stale sweets too. On the other hand, if you want to treat yourself and your family and friends to something fresh and healthier, you can make Kaju ki barfi or Kaju katli at home as well. Try the recipe to enjoy some fresh homemade Kaju katlis this festive season!
