Kaju Katli / Kaju Katri (Cashew Fudge)
Kaju Katli also called as Kaju Katri or Cashew Fudge. Kaju Katli is one of the most popular Indian desserts. Kaju Katli is mixture of cashew, sugar, ghee and saffron. It is considered to be more exotic and rich. Normally we use single thread sugar syrup to prepare this dessert, but my version is without using sugar syrup, even it is made in one pan.
