Kaju Katli | Kaju Barfi | Cashew Fudge

Kaju Katli is one of popular Indian sweet in festivals or wedding occasion. This time I prepared kaju katli for vegan sweet theme where Milk and milk products not used in recipe. If you want more creamy texture then add milk powder during cooking with cashew powder.






You can serve these awesome and tempting sweets during holi or diwali. When you grinding cashews to make powder, always take in small portion and grind it slowly, otherwise cashew starts releasing oil which makes powder moist.



You can garnish kaju katli with silver varq as shop brought, personally not prefer because it’s harmful for health.
