Kaju Katli | Cashew Burfi & crossed 2,00,000 hits :)

For the past two weeks,I found tremendous collection of sweets pouring down in the blogosphere and in fact each one is still busy making these for Diwali,a festival of lights.But to me,I just made them to satisfy my sweet tooth.So,today's recipe is the famous Kaju Katli and my favorite too.Also,I would like to share that my space has crossed 2 lakh hits a day ago.Thanx to all my frequent visitors of the space and your inspiring thoughts have always boosted me to cook more and more.Hoping to see you all in my ongoing journey with recipes.So,what more do you need to celebrate the day??:-)I had posted the Badam Katli recipe sometime back,the recipe remains the same except for badam I replaced it with cashews.And this is the simplest recipe to make katlis,no churning sugar to one string consistency and no long process of preparation.So,enjoy making this simple sweet at home for Diwali !!

cashews 1 1/2 cup
granulated sugar 3/4 cup(refer notes)
milk 2 tbsp
ghee 1 tbsp
cardamom powder 3/4 tsp

-Blend the cashews in a blender until smooth.Check not too over blend,otherwise it starts to stick with the blades.Keep aside,Powder the sugar and mix the two in a bowl without lumps.
-Heat the ghee in a pan and add the powdered mix into it.Add the milk and cardamom powder.
-Keep stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar is melted and the mixture starts to leave the sides and from the pan.It forms a dough like.(takes 7-9 minutes)
-Remove the mixture on a large piece of parchment paper.Fold the parchment paper or use another parchment paper to cover the top of the mixture.
-Roll using a rolling pin or a fondant smoother to level the mixture to 1/4 " thickness.Then,using a pizza cutter or a knife and cut out diamond shapes.
-Cool and break in pieces,serve !!

Servings~ 18 pieces

* You can use powdered sugar too for the recipe.
* I usually powder the cardamom along with sugar.Remove the skin and add the cardamom to the sugar.
