Kaju Katli Recipe

Preparation Time:10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Makes: around 15 to 17 Recipe Category: Sweets | Recipe Cuisine: Indian


Whole Cashews – 1 cup Sugar – 1/2 cup Water – 1/4 cup Melted Ghee – just for greasing

Step By Step Kaju Katli Recipe:

1. Measure your ingredients and keep it ready. If your cashews are refrigerated, then bring to room temperature and then proceed. Ensure your mixer is completely dry. Transfer cashews to a mixer and grind it to a semi fine powder. Don’t overdo as the cashews will leave out oil and the whole mixture will turn sticky.

2. See my cashew powder was this coarse. Now boil sugar and water, keep stirring in low flame till sugar completely dissolves. Then it starts to bubble up, Keep stirring, keep a small bowl containing water. Check by pouring few drops of sugar syrup in water, it should a fine thread and should not dissolve. That's the right stage.

3. Now add the cashew mixture and keep stirring until it forms a thick rolling mixture like this. It should be like a flexible dough. The dough should not be dry, it should be soft and flexible so switch off accordingly. You can even try rolling a ball, it should be flexible then that’s the correct consistency. It took me just 7-8 mins for forming the cashew dough. Switch off and let it cool down for 10mins.

4. When its still warm, knead it well, don’t scrap the dough from the sides as the mixture would be hard. The dough was grainy, but after kneading the dough became smooth. If you feel the mixture is dry add 1/2 tsp ghee and then knead it. Now lay a butter paper, place the kaju dough and fold the paper such that the butter paper is on top and bottom of the dough. Now start rolling with a chapathi roller.

5. Roll it to 1/4 inch thickness, remove the butter paper on top. Cut with a sharp knife. Mark lines.

6. And cut into diamonds. Now you have the liberty to enjoy the edge uneven pieces Now separate the pieces.

7. Cool down and store in airtight container.
