Hi friends, Hope all of you enjoyed ur weekend and now Christmas holidays... So no limit for happiness and enjoy well with your family and friends....

I WISH U ALL VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Today, I posting Kaju flower, which was I prepared for Diwali, but now only gets time to post this...I think this is a right time to share the yummy sweet recipes.... Actually I don't like Cashew nut in the whole form, but I love it in powder form like kaju katli, flowers n all... Whenever I go to any sweet shop or restaurants my eyes will go for this kaju flower and all milk sweets...
That much I love it... Usually I will buy mixed sweets of milk and kaju sweets like 1/4-1/2kg.. I will emptied the box within one day, I won't give for my brother too!!! He he he... am very crazy for the sweets esp. milk and kaju.... I got the recipe from one of our blogger's circle and she used liquid glucose to get the desired and constant shape but I didn't have that so am not using that but no problem not bad in the shape its came out still good... 

I was planned to make kaju katli for the diwali, by luckily I was seen the kaju flower in net and no delay I prepared the flower and am very happy to see the wonderful sweet... You too try this and treat to your family and friends and let me tell the feed backs...

Little about Kaju sweet
Here I discussed about kaju katli, because it has some variations to make the many kaju sweets like different shape.

Kaju katli is an Indian dessert similar to a barfi. Kaju means Cashew nut in Hindi. Barfi is often but alwayss, made by thickening milk with sugar and other ingredients. The kaju barfi recipe that include saffron and is known as kesar kaju katli. The kesar version of this sweet dish is considered to me more exotic and rich. It is an expensive dessert as compared to its counterparts.
