How to Make Cashew Besan Burfi

  • Chop the cashew nuts roughly and place it in a mixer.
  • Process briefly to make a very coarse powder (like minced cashew nuts). Heat the ghee in a kadai.
  • Add besan and roast on low flame till the raw smell is lost.
  • Mix in the cashew nuts and transfer to a plate.
  • Heat 1/2 cup of water in the kadai. Add sugar.
  • Cook, stirring till the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the besan and nut mixture.
  • Mix well and cook, stirring till the mixture leaves the sides of the kadai and forms a thick lump.
  • Stir in the cardamom powder.
  • Pour the mixture in a greased thali.
  • Pat with the back of a greased katori (small bowl) to make the surface smooth.
  • When it is cool and firm, cut into pieces.
  • Cool completely before storing in a container.
