Kaju Roll | Cashew Burfi | Kaju katli

Posted on April 29th, 2009

I very badly wanted to taste kaju katli. Its my hubby’s favorite too. I started off grinding Kaju (cashew) only then I realized that I dont have ghee and I had to buy it :D Nothing could stop me. I somehow ended up preparing the kaju burfi without ghee (believe me no ghee at all). The taste was too gud! Since I didnt have ghee I made kaju burfis and rolls instead of making katlis. Here is the kaju roll recipe.

Kaju Roll | Cashew Burfi

Kaju Roll | Cashew Burfi

Am sending this recipe to Poornima’s Let’s go Nuts event started by Aquadaze.



Cashews: 2.5 cups
Sugar:1 cup
Water: 1/2 cup
Elachi (Cardamom) powder:1/2 tsp

Preparation Method:

  • Roast the cashews without oil/ghee for just 2 mins.
  • Grind the cashews as coarse powder.
  • Mix sugar in water and allow it to boil.
  • Keep boiling till we get one string consistency.
  • Remove it from the stove top.
  • Add the powdered cashew and elachi to the sugar syrup.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Spread the mixture on a greased plate.
  • Cut it into pieces to enjoy the kaju katli.

    • Since I didnt have ghee/butter to grease the plate and spread the mixture, I prepared Kaju rolls by rolling the mixture (into cylindrical shape). I didnt apply ghee/butter to my hands before rolling them, still it came our very well without sticking to my hands :)
