Kaju Katli: A Sweet Made of Cashewnut Paste & Sugar Syrup

One of the most common and popular sweets made and distributed during the festival of Diwali is the Kaju Katli or the Kaju burfi (cashew burfi). When I learnt the recipe, I was surprised that the shops charged exorbitantly for a sweet that was so simple to make. No more Kaju Katli purchases I said to myself and made a good batch of it for Diwali. It turned just as good as the ready made ones and was liked by all.
