Kaju Katli Reclpe -- How to make Kaju Barfi

Hi, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make kaju katli/kaju barfi.
Kaju katli or kaju barfi is a special sweet made during Diwali festival. It is made with cashew nuts. During Diwali, people distribute sweets among friends and family. Diwali without Kaju katli or kaju barfi and ladoo are the most important and a must-haves among them. I like kaju katli very much. I want to give a try long back but feared on spoiling it. One of my neighbouring aunt gave simple tips. I also searched in different blogs for the recipe. At last, I tried my hand and it came very well. I felt happy and my BP shoots up to normal, which was always on lower side otherwise, out of excitement.
This is the first time I am making, so prepared very less quantity. I could make only 15 pieces, but we can increase the quantity according to our requirement. I also did not spread silver vark as I did not have it at that time.
