A delectable preparation of cashew paste cooked to perfection in cardamom-flavoured sugar syrup, you could serve the cashew barfi for dessert garnished with a few strands of saffron, or use it as a base for more elaborate preparations. Make sure you get the consistency of the sugar syrup right, and there is nothing else to worry about in this recipe.
