Kaju Barfi


2 cups cashews whole
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp ghee
cardamom powder
saffron strands(optional)
silver varq/foil(optional)


Dry grind cashews to a fine powder. Place the powdered cashews, sugar, saffron in a non stick pan on medium heat. Keep stirring until a soft ball is formed. Switch off the heat, add cardamom powder and pour onto a greased plate. Place the silver foil while still hot. Cut into pieces once cooled.

Note: It doesnt take long to get to a soft ball/dough like consistency. Mine took about 12 mins. Allow to cool completely before cutting into pieces.

Makes around 20 barfis.
