How to make Homemade Kajuki Barfi

  • Grind cashew nuts to a smooth powder in a grinder.
  • Heat water in a heavy bottomed pan.
  • Add sugar to the water and cook on a low flame.
  • Stir the water and sugar constantly in the pan until sugar dissolves.
  • Keep cooking on low flame till the sugar syrup becomes thick and is of one-string consistency. When you put a drop of sugar syrup between your thumb and finger and pull the finger away, a thread should be formed.
  • Add the cashew powder to the sugar syrup and mix well.
  • Cook this mixture of cashew paste for 6 minutes, stirring continuously until it thickens.
  • Remove from the flame. Transfer this cashew paste to a large bowl.
  • Cool the cashew paste for 8 minutes and then knead into a dough.
  • Make a big ball of the cashew dough.
  • Grease a plate with ghee.
  • Flatten the cashew dough gently in the greased plate with a rolling pin.
  • Cool the flattened cashew dough completely and then cut into preferred shapes.

Trivia

Did you know that cashews grow out of ‘Apples’? The cashew apple is a false fruit. The true fruit of the cashew tree grows at the bottom of cashew apples and that fruit contains one seed, that is, the cashew. Though cashews are extremely nutritious, the shell of raw cashews is poisonous. This poisonous part of the cashew is made of the same substance that makes poison ivy a potent poison!
