Cashew barfi

Posted on July 17, 2009. Filed under: Sweets | Tags: , , |

The cooked cashew and sugar mixture when moulded into dainty shapes make an interesting variation of the traditional barfi.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 10 to 12 mins.

Makes 10 pieces.

1 cup (200 grams) cashewnuts, broken
½ cup (50 grams) sugar
½ teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
1. Grind the cashewnuts to a fine powder.
2. In a non-stick pan, dissolve the sugar in ½ cup of water and heat to prepare a syrup of one string consistency.
3. Add the cashew powder and cook over a medium flame, stirring continuously till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan (approx. 10 to 12 minutes).
4. Transfer to a plate and cool slightly. Knead gently and press them into greased chocolate moulds.
5. Unmould and serve.
