Cashew~Walnut Laddu (Kaju-Akhrot Burfi) From: http://www.nandyala.org/mahanandi/archives/2006/01/27/cashewwalnut-laddu/ When I invited my friends to celebrate Sankranthi festival, in addition to the traditional ‚??sweet pongal‚??, I also prepared cashew walnut laddu. Low in sugar calories, high in nut energy! Cashews and walnuts are first roasted and powdered, then cooked in milk-sugar kova, till they all came together into solid fudge like consistency. Cooling further solidifies the mixture, and then small portions are taken and shaped into round balls-‚??laddus‚?? or cut into squares-‚??burfis‚??. I like the round shape, so I always go with round laddus. Very convenient to hold and eat, children particularly love laddus.

Recipe Ingredients for Cashew~Walnut Laddu

8 c. of whole milk
1 1/2 cups of sugar (or 2 cups, how sweet, your choice)
1 cup cashews
1 cup walnuts

Recipe Directions for Cashew~Walnut Laddu

  1. Milk and Sugar: Bring milk to a boil in a big wide pot. Add sugar and stir. Cook the mixture until is gets thick and is reduced to about one fourths of the original quantity. It takes atleast 45 minutes to one hour.:)

  2. Cashews and Walnuts: Meanwhile, lightly roast cashews and walnuts separately in an iron skillet. Let them cool down to room temperature. Separate 10 pieces from each and chop them into small pieces. With the remaining ones - make a fine powder of them in a food processor/mixer.

  3. Kova into Laddu: Add this fine powder to the thickened milk-sugar kova and cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is very thick. Sprinkle in chopped chunks of cashews and walnuts, that was kept aside, cook for another 10 minutes or until the mixture is almost crumbly and comes away easily from the sides of pan.

  4. Take a spoonful of mixture and press it with your hands into a ball. If it holds shape, then mixture is ready for cooling. Turn off the heat. Spoon the mixture into a greased square or round pan. Level it with a spatula and let it cool for at least 4 to 5 hours. Cut into squares for burfis or take a spoonful of mixture, shape it with your hands into a round ball for laddus. Store them in jar, will stay fresh for 4 to 7 days.
