indian sweet kaju katli /cashewnut katli

kaju katliMost admired sweet I should say and we Indians can’t even think a festivity without this stupendous sweet “Kaju katli”. Its birth place is from North-India  virulently spread in all directions and of-course no-body will have any chance to say that they are totally ignorant about it. There is something I adore about this sweet is that “its simplicity” that have made this wholesome sweet a conquering hero.No long lists of ingredients and complications which by all means rightly says that it indian sweet kaju katli can even be tried by a beginner!kaju katliof course some slight nuances like the sugar consistency where you have to rightly add the cashew powder is all that matters,but once mastered it’s a no fuss job. While checking for the doneness of kaju katli is that when you are able to make a ball and it is the right time to take out the mixture out of the pan into a bowl to cool(I mean the right consistency). Usually for this no flavouring are added but if you like you can add rose essence or even cardamom powder.Only whisk the cashews to make powder and never grind otherwise it will form a paste.while transferring the mixture to the bowl to form a dough it will be hot and little difficult to manage but you can continue to stir on with spoon till it-becomes manageably warm to knead by hand.In total its one of the exotic sweet to try this festive season.

Notes

When you transfer it to a bowl it will be very hot and stir only with a spoon. But after sometime it will become manageabley hot that you can handle it to form a smooth dough. Polythene sheet,cling film or even a aluminum foil can be used for rolling. Roll it to the thickness you prefer it to be. Usually for this no flavoring are added but if you like you can add rose essence or even cardamom powder. Only whisk the cashews and never grind otherwise it will form a paste. I have used less sugar but you can add 3/4th cup of powdered sugar.
