Dissolve sugar & water in a pan,boil them till you get a 2 string consistency.
2 string consistency is when 2 strings are formed without breaking when your forefinger & your thumb are pulled apart gently.
Switch off the flame remove from the heat, now add the cashew nut powder & rose essence mix it well till it forms a soft ball.
Add ghee & mix it well to avoid drying of the dough.
Grease a plastic sheet or your clean kitchen counter with ghee, place the cashew dough.Place another sheet on top & roll the dough to semi thick.
Decorate with edible silver foil ,cut into desired shapes & enjoy!
Notes:
a) Do not grind cashew nut if just taken out from fridge,bring to room temperature & dry grind in intervals.
b) Sugar syrup should be 2 string consistency.
c) Once the consistency is obtained remember the remaining process is done after switching off the stove.
d) If your dough becomes crumble or hard,sprinkle 1 or 2 drops of warm milk knead & roll them out.Remember shelf life will be less if using milk.
e) For flavouring add cardamom powder or saffron , for katli I prefer rose essence.
