Kaju Katli

Kaju Katli is one of our favourite sweets and I made this for Diwali and posting for Day 3 of Blogging Marathon #22. I noted it down from a TV show and have tried it a couple of times before.The katli will be ready so fast and its easy if you keep all the things,rolling pin etc ready. 

              "Wish you all a very happy and prosperous Diwali"

kaju katli


1 cup
Sugar powdered
½ cup+2 tblsp
Rose essence
½ tsp

cashew/Sugar powder and Sugar syrup preparation

Kaju Katli

Kaju Katli

  • Grind cashewnut to a fine powder using a mixie.Transfer to a bowl.
  • Powder sugar and transfer it to a pan.
  • Add little water till the sugar is just immersed.
  • Boil till you get one string consistency.Add rose essence ,mix well and immediately transfer to the bowl containing cashew powder.
  • Mix well with a ladle.Once its warm enough to handle with your hands,grease little ghee and knead it well.You will get a smooth ball .
  • Place this ball in between parchment sheets and roll to desired thickness using rolling pin.
  • Cut into diamonds and serve.
  • While grinding the cashews grind it at a stretch,don't stop many times in between.
  • The sugar syrup consistency is important to get the right texture.
  • Kneading it well is also important.
  • If the mixture is dry and it breaks while kneading,add very little milk, knead again and proceed.(I used few drops of milk as mine was bit dry)
  • But when you use milk the shelf life is less and its better to refrigerate and consume it quickly.
