Kaju Katli

Method

1 string consistency is when 1 string are formed without breaking when your forefinger & your thumb are pulled apart gently.
Lower the flame & add the powdered cashew nut & start mixing.
You will find that the the mixture has reached a dough consistency.
Switch off the flame add the rose essence mix well
Grease a plate with ghee & spread the dough & roll them to your desired thickness.

Note:
a) If your dough becomes crumbly & dry add 1 or 2 tsp of milk & knead the dough.Then roll & cut into desired shape.If milk is added then store it in fridge.
b) Powder the cashew nuts in intervals,do not oven run the blender/mixi the powder will turn oily or lumpy as nuts have oil.

Kaju Katli
Method
 Powder cashew nuts in a coffee grinder or mixi to a dry fine powder ,keep it aside.
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.
