Lets check the consistency by adding a small piece of the cashew mixture to a bowl of water.Roll it between your fingers,if it forms a non sticky ball then the consistency is perfect.

Grease a board or a plate with a tsp of ghee.Transfer the cashew burfi to the greased plate/board.Spread them gently and evenly with a greased flat surface like a spatula,bowl or a plate

grease the board

After 5 mins start making diagonal shapes out of them to form perfect Khaju Khatli.
