Rakshabandhan is around the corner and celebration is incomplete without sweets. What is Rakshabandhan? Rakshabandhan in Sanskrit means “knot of protection”. Sisters tie Rakhi on their brother’s wrist and pray for his long life with the expression of love. In return, brothers pledge to protect and take care of their sisters.
Kaju Katli in one of the popular and most liked burfi by everyone. Recently learned this quick and easy burfi from one of my talented fellow blogger Shital who makes all sorts of sweets at home.
So if you haven’t the sweets for Rakhi from the market then you definitely want to give this a try before buying it. You will not be disappointed for sure. Now lets make this wonderful kaju katli.
- 1 cup cashews, powdered
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
- 2.5 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp clarified butter
First of all, get the cashews ready by putting in the food processor or a blender. Do not run it continuously otherwise it will release the oil and the cashews will be mushy. Pulse it a few times, this will keep it dry and powdery texture.
In a heavy bottom pan, add sugar and milk. Mix it well so that the sugar is dissolved. Bring it to a boil on medium heat while stirring.
Add the cashews and stir for about 3-4 minutes on a low heat until it comes together like a dough.
Grease your thali or your counter, wherever you want to spread the dough. You can use a rolling pin to give it a shape and thickness you desire or you use your hands spread it evenly.
Let it cool down and cut it using pizza cutter into diamond shape. If you have the silver foil, you can use that. If not I used saffron strands dissolved in a tbsp of hot milk and brush it on.
Now your kaju katli is ready…
