Melt in Mouth

Yayyy! It's Diwali season. The Festival of Lights does just that light up the homes and hearts of people all over the world. Personally, it's one of my favorite festivals, just because it has so many varieties of food. Like not only sweets but in Punjab people make different types of spicy gravy and bread. Let's talk about what is seen the most during Diwali other than all the lighting. And that's Soan papdi Or Kaju katli. Almost everyone loves Kaju katli including me who never eats sweets. Kaju katli is Kaju barfi where Kaju means cashew and barfi means sweet. It is rich, exquisite and amazingly decadent with a smooth melt-in-mouth texture. It is mildly flavored and textured with cardamom and saffron. The pieces are usually decorated with silver edible foil. The finished end sweet is either yellow or white depending upon the ingredients used.

Fun fact: People with diabetes can have Kaju katli ( Yes, because nuts have a low glycemic index. Magnesium-rich calcium can help in lowering the risk of diabetes.)
