Tips to Make Kaju Katli (Kaju Barfi Sweet)

  • Make sure to cook the cashew and MILMKAID mixture over low heat. Keep stirring continuously to avoid any risk of it sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.

  • Always choose fresh and whole cashews to ensure the best flavour and texture of your Kaju Katli.

FAQs on Kaju Katli (Kaju Barfi Sweet)

1. Why is my Kaju Katli mixture dry and hard?

When your Kaju Katli is cooked for longer than needed, it can become dry and hard. Add a couple of teaspoons of milk and mix until smooth and soft.

2. How long does homemade Kaju Katli stay fresh?

Homemade Kaju Katli usually remains fresh for approximately a week when carefully stored in an airtight container. However, the duration of its freshness may fluctuate based on temperature, humidity, and the ingredients used in your Kaju Katli recipe. For the most enjoyable taste and texture, it's recommended to savour it within a few days.

3. Why is my Kaju Katli soft and gooey?

If your Kaju Katli turns out too soft and gooey, it could mean that the cashew mixture was undercooked. The mixture needs to cook until it thickens and starts to come together, leaving the sides of the pan. Ensure that you cook it on low heat for a sufficient amount of time to achieve the right consistency.

4. Can I use pre-ground cashew powder in the Kaju Katli recipe?

It is better to grind whole cashews in the Kaju Barfi recipe, as freshly ground cashews provide better flavour and texture. But if that’s not possible, you can use good quality pre-ground cashew powder for better flavour.
