High Protein Barfi
Festivities are incomplete without Kaju barfi So, here’s bringing you a super delicious yet healthy recipe that’ll let you binge on your favorite barfis, guilt-free!
- 1 cup cashews, ground into a fine powder
- 1 spoon High Protein Atta Mix or 1 Sachet High Protein Atta Mix (Single serve)
- 1/2 cup sugar or (sugar-free sweetener of your choice)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter)
- A pinch of saffron strands (optional)
- Edible silver foil for garnish (optional)
Grind the cashews into a fine powder using a blender or food processor. Add 1 spoon High Protein Atta Mix or 1 Sachet High Protein Atta Mix.
In a non-stick pan, add sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the sugar dissolves and the syrup reaches a one-string consistency. You can test the consistency by taking a drop of syrup between your thumb and index finger—when you pull them apart, a single string should form.
Add the ground cashew powder to the sugar syrup and mix well to avoid lumps.
Continue cooking the mixture on low heat, stirring constantly. Add ghee and saffron strands (if using) to the mixture.
Keep cooking until the mixture thickens and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
Once the mixture reaches a dough-like consistency, transfer it to a greased plate or tray. Allow it to cool for a few minutes.
While the mixture is still warm, knead it gently to make a smooth dough.
Roll out the cashew dough into a thin, even layer using a rolling pin. If it sticks, you can place a parchment paper on top while rolling.
Allow the rolled dough to cool completely. Once cooled, cut it into diamond-shaped pieces.
Optionally, garnish each piece with a small piece of edible silver foil.
Your high-protein kaju barfi is ready to be savored!
