How to Make Microwavable Cashew Burfi

  • Soak cashew in milk for an hour and grind finely along with saffron.
  • In a casserole, mix sugar with 1/2 cup of water and stir well.
  • Microwave it on high for 4 minutes to dissolve the sugar, stirring once in between.
  • Microwave ghee for 1 minute, on high.
  • Add cashew paste and hot ghee to sugar syrup.
  • Microwave on high for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring thoroughly twice in between.
  • Test the mixture by putting a drop of mixture into cold water. If it forms a soft, firm ball, then it is ready. If not, microwave on high for another 1 or 2 minutes.
