Kaju katli also know as kaju burfi is a Indian sweet which is similar to other burfi made like coconut, besan. Kaju means cashews as we all know and this burfi is made with cashews . These are traditionally shaped as diamonds and covered with edible sliver in the top .. Our Mawari wedding will surely have this sweet in the array of sweet usually displayed before the actual meal starts. Unlike in south india they have sweets after a meal we rajasthan's serve savories and sweets in the beginning of a meal Also there is a tradition of giving sweets to the guest like feeding them even they say no which is considered a respectful hospitality. Coming to kaju katli its My bros fav I have been making this katli many times and for this diwali I made this sweet as a part of my mithai box which my H took to office for his friends and I got lots of compliments for them.

We had a wonderful diwali celebration and is like a festival week for us- Diwali, My daughters birthday, Halloween celebration at her school and not to forget there was is vast Annakut celebration in BAPs temple for diwali 2014 here and we really enjoyed it. Kaju katli is a very easy sweet to make if you know the proper method to make it I had lots of trial and this recipe was the perfect tasted like a store bought katli , even better actually making the soft is the key for its better taste. Most of the time if the kaju dough is dry you will not get a soft katli. Do read the method and do exactly you will sure get a soft katli. They taste great the same day you make also 2-3 days but you need to store them in a air tight box so that they don't get dried. Lets move on to the recipe..
