Cashewnut Burfi

This burfi is something that my Chemba Athai makes. She makes this superbly and brings to me whenever she comes to see her brother thaat's my Appa. So dedicating this to my Athai.


Cashewnuts - 1 cup Powdered
Sugar - 1/2 cup Heaped
Ghee - 1 tsp for greasing
Water - 1/4 cup


Heat a heavy bottom pan on medium heat. Add sugar and water to it. Mix well will a spoon.

Bring that to a boil and simmer them for 5-8 mins till they form one string consistency.

To check that take few drops of sugar syrup between your fingers and it should form a string when your press between them(check image). Or you can add few drops of sugar syrup in a bowl of cold water, the sugar syrup wont get dissolved.  Or you can take the sugar syrup in a spoon and invert them, the last drop falling from the spoon forms a string like consistency.

Once the sugar has reached this consistency. Add the cashew powder to it and mix well.

Mix them for 3-4 mins till the mixture leaves the sides and form a sticky dough.

Transferred that to a ghee greased plate and let them cool for 5 mins.

Now grease your hands too and knead them till they get into a smooth ball.

Grease a rolling pin and roll them into a rectangle.

Cut them into squares and serve..
