kaju biscuit recipe | cashew cookies | cashew biscuits | cashew nut cookies with step by step photo and video recipe. indian cuisine is known for its versatility and the adaptability to other cuisines. there has been a lot of influence from overseas cuisine which eventually gels into the native recipes. one such easy and simple adapted recipe is kaju biscuit recipe, which is a classic example of the fusion of 2 cuisines.

as i mentioned previously, this recipe of kaju biscuit or cashew cookies is a unique one. to begin with, the combination of ghee and plain flour is very innovative. generally, in most of the cookies recipe, butter is the wet or greasy ingredient. but as an indian fusion recipe, ghee is added an alternative to the cookie batter in hyderabadi karachi bakery style. in addition, i have also added cashew powder in addition to the cashew nuts pieces topping. addition of cashew nuts opens up a new dimension of flavours to these biscuits. further, to these, the combination of cashew nut powder and custard powder makes it creamy, soft and rich biscuit recipe.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the kaju biscuit recipe. firstly, these biscuits are made with plain flour which makes it an ideal combination. having said that these can also be made with wheat flour or multigrain flour to make it a healthy alternative. secondly, i have baked these in a traditional oven which makes it baking these cookies quite easy. but you can also make these in the cooker and you can check my peanut cookies for the detailed steps. lastly, use fresh and homemade ghee for the best end result. store-bought ghee can make these cookies stale easily with less shelf life.
