Kaju Katli and Awards!


Ingredients:

Cashews – 1 cup
Sugar – ¾ cup or adjust according to your taste
Milk – 5 tbsp
Ghee – 5 tsp










Cooking Instructions:

Soak cashews in water for about half an hour. Then drain the excess water and grind it to a fine paste along with milk.

Add sugar in a deep pan and water little above the sugar level and bring it to a boiling consistency. Now add grinded paste and ghee slowly and mix well so that it does not form any lumps. Keep stirring it regluarly and when the paste starts to leave the sides of the pan, take a pinch of paste and let it to cool. When you are able to form ball out of that paste, switch off the stove.




Let it to cool for a while and spread the mixture on a greased plate. Roll it out to your desired thickness and Let the mixture to cool again for about 10 minutes in that plate. Cut it in your desired shapes now and now kaju katli is ready to serve.

I rolled it out into peda shapes instead of regular diamond shapes for a change. The taste was really amazing.
