This is an Indian treat.
I figure out the size and shape I'm going to cut these into and place a whole cashew nut on top of each piece while still warm. I sometimes roll it into little balls while still warm and roll them in the cashew powder or in coconut powder, I love these little treats

How to Make kaju burfi (cashew fudge)


  1. Grind the cashew nuts to powder. Coffee grinder works best.
  2. on very low heat in a heavy bottom pan roast the cashew powder for about 4 minutes or until powder just gets warm. do not heat for any longer or it will start getting oily.
  3. in a sauce pan , boil sugar and water together on medium heat until syrup is 1 thread or 225* on a candy thermometer.
  4. next add the saffron to the syrup and mix well (saffron is optional)
  5. add the cashew powder to the syrup and mix well, making sure there are no lumps.
  6. to check the right consistency take a little mix in a spoon, you should be able to roll this into a soft ball.
  7. next spread the mix quickly into a greased dish , spread before the mix cools off.
  8. allow to cool, then cut into desired shapes, and enjoy!
  9. Grind small portions at a time if you grind for too long the nuts will start getting oily.
    Store at room temperature for a week or in the fridge for longer.
    If the mix remains soft , you can cook on low for a few minutes.
    If it is too dry add boiling water a spoon at a time, making sure it comes to right consistency.
    You can't really go wrong.
