How To Make Yummy Kaju Puri At Home?

by Hemant Shah 22 Mar 2024

Everyone needs a guilt-free snack to take a break. Whether your boss gives you another deadline or your kid is bored with homework, here is an easy and simple recipe for Cashew Puri to satisfy your hunger. Let’s make it healthy and tasty yet free of preservatives, colours, and toxic substances, as opposed to the readily available Kaju or Cashwes in markets. 

Kaju Puri is the best way to treat your guests for events like Holi and Diwali! Moreover, you can keep it for ten days, so don’t worry about a last-minute rush to prepare it fresh!

What All You Need?

  • Cashew Nuts (Kaju): Cashews are rich in fibre, proteins, and healthy fats. They are also a good source of filling, keeping you feeling full for a longer time. But essentially, they are tasty!

  • Blanched Almonds (Badam): Add almonds to add that extra crunch and bite in your Kaju Puri. We mean, WHY NOT!

  • Powdered Sugar: Generally, powdered sugar is used. However, according to your taste, you can replace it with brown sugar or jaggery.

  • Saffron (Kesar) Strands: Add saffron for that beautiful natural yellow colour.

  • Unsalted butter: No baked dish is made without butter. Add it to make your dough smooth.

  • Milk: Add some milk for that creamy and rich flavour.

Your Roadmap To Make Kaju Puri

We guess you are all ready with the ingredients by now! So, let’s begin to make our own Cashew Nuts or Kaju Puri step-by-step.

Gather All The Nutty Stuff

  1. First, blend ½ cup cashews into the powder using a mixer jar or other suitable accessory.

  2. Take ½ cup of blanched almonds and remove their skin. Remove all the moisture and dry them by dabbing them using a muslin cloth. Then, spread them over that muslin cloth to get further air-dried.

  3. Blend the almonds, similar to cashews, into a powder form.

Mix It All

  1. Add ¾ cup powdered sugar, ½ tsp saffron strands, cashews, and almonds to the jar. Blend further to get a homogeneous and fairly smooth powder.

  2. Take a non-stick pan and add 3 tsp unsalted butter and 2 tsp water. Mix it well till the butter melts.

Make The Dough Of Kaju Puri

  1. Add the mixture to a pan & cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Continue cooking until the mixture sticks together, stirring continuously.

  2. Add 1 tsp of unsalted butter to the pan and mix it. Transfer the batter to a greased plate and spread it, smoothing the surface. Let it cool for 10 minutes, so it is easy to handle now. The batter should be crumbly in texture.

  3. Add 1 tbsp milk & knead the dough to smoothen the batter. Divide the Kaju Puri dough into two equal portions.

Let’s Make The Circles

  1. Flatten a portion of a dough and place it over a greased rolling board (chakla). Cut the dough into small circles using a cookie cutter. Collect the remaining scraps and flatten the dough to get a few more Puris.

  2. Put the Cashew Puris on a baking tray & bake it for 5 minutes in a preheated oven at 200 degree celsius.

  3. Take the tray out. Let the puris cool down. Then, turn them around. This step is crucial to prevent the kaju puri from cracking.

  4. Again, bake the cashew nut puri for 5 minutes in an oven under the same conditions.

Your tasty Kaju Puri is now ready to be served. You can also keep them in an airtight jar to enjoy later.
