  • 100 g - cashews, soaked in water for 1.5 hours
  • 100 g - powdered sugar

How to Make Plain Kaju Katli

  • Make a paste of the soaked cashews with very little water.
  • If too much water is used the kaju katli will become too soft and unmouldable.
  • Add the sugar to the kaju paste and stir well to mix the sugar.
  • Turn out the paste in a pan.
  • On a medium flame, stir the mixture constantly till the mixture starts leaving the sides and coming together.
  • Turn out the mixture in a bowl.
  • Cool this mixture, stirring constantly, till it becomes very stiff, like dough, and is completely cool.
  • Turn out the mixture on a sheet of plastic.
  • After 10 mins, roll out the dough with a rolling pin.
  • Cut into diamond shapes.
