Kaju Katli

Kaju katli is my kid's favorite sweet.

I actually learnt to make this sweet dish only after I came to US.

When we were in India,we always pay a visit frequently to the one and only Adyar Anand Bhavan.They make the best kaju katlis.Their sweets and savouries are drool -worthy!!

I really miss them.

So when i was searching for kaju katli recipe,I stumbled upon Chitvish's recipes in Indusladies.

Her recipe is so simple.Here it goes


Cashews - 1 cup

Sugar - 3/4 cup(If u like it to be sweeter the you can add 1 cup)

Ghee - 1 tbsp

water - 1/4 cup


Microwave the cashews for 1 minute.Powder it in a mixie.Use the pulser.

Smear a little bit of ghee on the back of a plate and the flat side of a katori/cup.

In a heavy bottomed vessel add 1/4 cup of water.Then add the sugar and allow it to boil.

Test the consistency of the sugar syrup.It can be done by a putting a spoon of sugar syrup in a glass of water.If you can roll the sugar syrup into a ball then it has reached the right consistency.

Switch off the stove and add the cashew powder.Keep on stirring until it becomes a thick mass.

Empty it into the greased plate and with the back side of the cup spread and flatten it as thin as possible.

Cut into diamond shapes.
