Ingredients needed :
- Cashews - 1 cup
- Sugar - 3/4 cup
- Ghee - 1 tbsp.
- Water - 1/4 cup
- Elachi powder - little (opt.)
Heat a kadai and fry the cashews slightly and powder it ....(Use the whipper / pulser button ..) in the same kadai add sugar and 1/4 cup of water and allow it to boil well , to make the sugar syrup ...
The right consistency can be checked by : take a spoon of sugar syrup and drop it in a cup of little water ... , if the syrup is able to be rolled like a small ball ...then it is the right consistency ...at this point switch off the stove ..
to the sugar syrup now add the cashew powder + elachi powder (opt.) and keep mixing it well to form nice thick dough .... then transfer it to a ghee greased plate and spread it out evenly ...once it is cooled , cut it into desired shape ....
Kaju Katli is ready ....
If u feel the cashew powder is bit less to form thick dough , once add to the sugar syrup ..u can add little more ...or if the cashew + sugar syrup mixture is not forming a dough ...then sprinkle little water , it helps to bind easily ....
Got this recipe from here. Twice I have tried this ...it came out perfect but had to opt for both the points, I have given in Note, taste was excellent ...we all loved it.
