Kaju Katli Recipe

Kaju katli also known as kaju barfi is a popular Indian sweet made from cashews. Here is a basic recipe for making kaju katli at home:


  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp ghee (clarified butter)


  1. Finely grind the cashew nuts in a food processor or mixer.
  2. In a pan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and add the cashew nut powder to the pan. Keep stirring for about 5-7 minutes, until the mixture thickens and forms a dough-like consistency.
  4. Add the ghee and mix well.
  5. Remove the pan from heat and transfer the mixture to a greased plate or tray.
  6. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes, then knead it lightly with your hands to make it smooth.
