CASHEW KATLI


This sweet is made with finely powdered cashewnuts and an addictive sweet.

Iv posted another version of this sweet with date and nut stuffing .

Before i knew how to make this sweet ,i thought it was difficult to get the correct

consistency.Believe me it’s just minutes away to make it,and do try your hand at it.

Cashew katli can be stored in the refridgerator for  a month.

Now for this version of cashew katli

Ingredients

2 cups finely powdered cashewnuts

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup water/milk

1 tsp.cardamon powder

1 tsp.ghee

2-3 tblsp.milk powder (optional)

Method

There are two methods which i have tried, and like to share with you.

Method 1: Heat all the ingredients,except the ghee together on medium flame,till it

comes to a soft dough stage.Lastly add ghee and roll between two sheets of oil paper

after  its cool.Cut into desired shapes.

Method 2: Heat the water and sugar till sugar dissolves.(one string consistency).

Add the rest of the ingredients,and cook  till soft ball stage.Cool,roll out,cut into

desired shapes.

Note : When you powder cashewnuts,run the mixer at high speed and powder at one

stretch,to avoid the release of oils.Sieve for fine powder.

You could dry roast the cashewnuts lightly,and powder  too.

For a richer look you could use silver vark on top of the mixture before cutting.(This does

not contibute to the taste)
