This is the first time I made this recipe,and it turned out awesome.Within minutes the
tray looked empty.Fortunately I made it very thin to minimise the intake of calories..
I added only 1.5 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder to the basic cashew katli recipe.
You can use unsweetened mawa/khova to substitute milk powder.
The secret to katlis with good texture is to powder little by little after it is in the fridge
for some time,and then sifted before making.
The next tip is to knead well to a smooth dough whilst warm before rolling it out.
Now for the simple and easy recipe…
250 gm cashewnuts ( split is better)
1/4 cup milk powder
1 heaped tsp.cocoa powder
100 gm sugar( you can use palm candy powder too.)
2-3 tsp ghee
Silver vark ( optional)
Powder the cashew in 2-3 batches and sieve.Add powdered milk,when powdering the last coarse cashew powder,and set aside.
Make one string syrup with 1/4 cup water and sugar.Add cashew powder + milk powder+ cocoa powder and remove from fire immedietely. Add 1 tsp of ghee
After you remove from fire,keep stirring till the mixture is warm.( Do not try to knead while hot ).
Once it is warm knead well.Add the rest of the ghee if the mixture is difficult to knead .
Roll between polythene sheets .
Press the silver vark on the top.Allow to set for 15 minutes and cut into desired shapes.
