ABOUT Chocolate kaju katli /Cashewnut glaze with chocolate glaze RECIPE

With the onset of festivals, comes a season of sweets and desserts. I always had a fear of making kaju katlis at home, thought them to be some rocket science....unless until i found the recipe of my dearest friend Farrukh Aziz from "Cubes N Juliennes". Recently she made some amazing Kesar Kaju Katlis, that inspired me to try my hands on too. Her recipe was one of the most finest and easiest recipe i came across. Though her's was saffron flavored and i tried doing some innovation to the recipe by adding a chocolaty touch to the traditional sweet. The katlis came out so perfect and delicious...so now, no more heavy money spending to buy Kaju Katlis... when we can make better ones at home.

Ingredients Serving: 20

  1. cashews - 2 1/4 cups
  2. sugar - 1 cup
  3. water - 100 ml
  4. Milk chocolate or Dark chocolate - 1 cup


  1. 1. Grind cashews in a blender to make a fine powder. Make sure the cashews are at room temperature before grinding, else it may release oil and make the powder into a sticky paste.
  2. 2. Take a heavy bottomed pan and add sugar and water. Bring to a boil. Once the sugar melts properly, simmer the gas flames and let boil for another few minutes till it becomes a one string syrup.
  3. 3.Now add the cashew nut powder into the syrup and stir continuously for another 4-5 minutes. You will gradually see the mix turning into a thick paste and will start folding together to form a big lump.
  4. 4. Turn off the flames and allow the mix to cool at room temperature.As soon as the mix comes to slightly warm temperature, grease your hands with ghee and start kneading the to make a dough.
  5. 5.Spread a butter paper and place the dough on it. Now roll the dough with a rolling pin to 5-6 mm only. Make sure the rolled out dough is even from all sides.
  6. 6. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate (i used Morde milk chocolate compound). As soon as the chocolate is melted properly, pour it over the rolled dough and spread it evenly with the help of a spatula.
  7. 7. Allow it to cool for some time and later refrigerate it for 15-20 mins.
  8. 8. Now cut the katlis into diamond shape and store it in an air tight box. You can enjoy the katlis for 2-3 weeks if stored in refrigerator.
