Kaju Katli/Indian Cashew Fudge/
How to make Kaju Barfi/Kaaju Katli/
HAPPY NAVARATRI TO ALL
Today I am here with a recipe which i wanted to try since long but never got courage to try my hands on it as it asks for sugar syrup (one of my biggest fears). This is my daughter's favorite sweet. I wanted to surprise her too. So after gathering courage and being ready for a failure i started and end up with a delicious and smooth fudge. I was always afraid that how i will know the exact consistency as i have a phobia of making sugar syrup with thread consistency. I saw video of nishamadhulika and then got some confidence.
I cant tell how how much happy i was. I was on cloud nine and eagerly waiting for my daughter to come and taste and give me review. When she saw the sweet she did not asked me anything and ate 2-3 pieces and when i told here that i have made this she said-wooow mamma. it is delicious. I have no words to explain the feeling. So i am moving forward without making any further

Silver Leaves (optional)

- If you like sweet with more sweeter side use 3/4 cup of sugar instead of 1/2 cup.
- If you wish you can leave silver leaf and keep it plain.
- You can use butter paper instead of foil paper while rolling it.
- You can make any shape like square round etc as per you wish.
- It will remain fresh for few weeks if kept in airtight container in fridge.
