Ingredients to make Kaju Katli

  • cashews – 1 cup
  • sugar – 1/2 cup
  • water – 1/4 cup
  • Rose water – 1 tsp
  • Tutti fruity – 2 tbsp
  • ghee – 2 tsp

How to make Kaju Katli

  1. Dry roast Cashews for a minute or until hot enough to touch in low flame without changing color.
  2. Transfer it to mixer and grind into powder. Don’t over-grind it as the cashew may release oil and become like paste.
  3. Heat sugar and water in a pan. Stir until the sugar dissolves and boil for a minute.
  4. The syrup has to be sticky and no need of any consistency. Once the syrup starts to bubble, add cashew powder.
  5. Mix and keep cooking in low flame until it becomes thick and rolls together.
  6. Add rose water and tutti fruity to it and mix quickly. Remove from flame and let it cool a bit.
  7. When it is hot enough to touch, pour ghee and knead to soft dough.
  8. Place a butter paper at top and roll the dough into circles. Adjust the thickness as you wish. Butter paper helps to get a smooth layer.
  9. Cut into desired shape and store in a container. It stays good for a week at room temperature.
  10. Decorate with silver paper and enjoy the melt in mouth kaju katli for any festival or special occasions.

My Tip:

Cashews have to be at room temperature before grinding. If you have refrigerated bring to room temperature and grind. Dry roasting is to remove moisture from Cashews and it is optional.
