Kaju Katli is a popular sweet dish in India. Chef Kunal Kapur gives a twist to this barfi by making it with jaggery instead of sugar. The addition of jaggery makes this sweet healthier. Cashew is a nutritious dry fruit that is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. They contain copper, which helps the skin stay younger and radiant.
