Cashew Burfi

     Actually i should name this post as "Kaju Katli" unfortunately named it as "Cashew Burfi". You like to know the reason, keep reading :) Recently bought a big tin of cashews from wholesale store. It looks sooooo fresh and with decent shape. Each time i see that, it was calling me to prepare Kaju Katli :P Being a NOT lover person of sweets, i was keep on hesitating its call. Finally, it was diwali season last week, thought of trying it. Even i tried but the outcome became burfi, instead of kaju katli, its all because of i missed a minute to put off the flame :( Eventhough there was a small disaster, taste was too gud !


ALL YOU NEED:
Cashewnuts 1 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Salt Pinch
Ghee To grease

METHOD:
     Take a dry mixer, add the cashews (should be in room temperature for a while) and grind it to a fine powder in a single shot i.e. without opening the lid of the mixer. Its because, if you give a gap, the powder will stick to the mixer. So, please take a care on that. Suppose, if it is sticky, not a problem but it will take some time to mix up with sugar syrup by forming lumps. Once grinding the cashew, now take a heavy bottomed, add sugar and water. Keep stirring until it reaches syrup consistency. To check that, take some water in a small bowl, add a drop of sugar syrup, when it form a string shape, its the perfect consistency. Now add the cashew powder, give a hard stir until it mix up with the sugar syrup. Let it be in flame for 5 mins and put off the flame. Grease a plate with a spoon of ghee, now pour the cashew mixture to the plate and cut as per your desired shape. Same procedure to be followed for "Kaju Katli" but you should put off the flame, when you can make it as small round balls.
