Inter VRF routing with physical cables

Dear Experts,

I am using VRFs on Nexus 5500 and inter VRF is via Firewall. I want to do some inter VRF routing directed VRF to VRF.
if I use direct physical cable between VRF to VRF ports, Is it possible if yes then what will be configuration.
Or any other solution?

You can do inter VRF routing on the nexus 5K by introducing the third L3 device.

You can't connect physical cable between VRF ports on the same nexus 5K switch as the layer2 path is common

So the logical path is nexus 5k VRF A -- another L3 Device --- nexus 5k VRF B

You can connect physical cable between VRF in nexus 7K only by creating VDCs
