Kaju Katli


  • Whole cashews – 1 cup
  • Sugar – ½ cup
  • Water – ¼ cup
  • Ghee – for greasing
Making of Kaju Katli –

  • Take out the cashews; be sure that the sachws must be at room temperature.
  • Grind the cashew to a coarse powder; do not over grind because it becomes sticky since cashew releases oil.
  • Spread it in a plate and break out the lumps with your fingers.
  • Boil sugar and water in a bowl. Check for the sugar syrup every now and then, it should be in a fine thread consistency.
  • Grease a foil paper or take out a butter paper and keep it aside.
  • Now add the cashew powder and keep stirring until it forms a thick rolling mixture.
  • Put the mixture to the foil or butter paper.
  • Cover it with another foil paper and start rolling it to ¼ thicknesses, remove the paper on the top.
  • Cut it with sharp knife to the diamond shape. Separate the pieces.
  • Bring them to room temperature and store it in an airtight container.
