Video – How to make kaaju barfi (Vegan cashew candy squares)
When Harsha was here, we did many videos together, with my son sometimes chipping in as an assistant to hold the umbrella over the light source. :) One of the most popular recipes on tongueticklers is kaaju barfi.  Many of you have made it and shared it virtually with me.  I also received requests to post a video as the concept of Indian sweets can be tough to understand as we do not use temperature scales to specify 'sugar candy stage'.  Instead we use the concept of 'one-thread, two-thread' etc. Once you get a hang of the above concept, making Indian sweets is a breeze.  I posted the link to the video on my personal facebook page, and yesterday my super-talented blogger friend Chinmayie confirmed that they turned out well.

When she returned for break this summer, we finally filmed a few videos to post. We are going ...

Each has its own characteristic taste and gatte can very well be used as a base to make gluten free gnocchi. To know more about gatte check my detailed post - how to make gatte.
