Kaju Katli


This particular sweet was made by my sister-in-law and shared with me. It was superb, and I just had to share this!!

The Kaju Katli has a distinctive look: pale in colour and diamond-shaped. It is a sweet savoured all across India, and is also part of most gifts given during festivals.

The recipie is rather straight-forward. I never would have guess it to be so easy!!

2 cups cashewnuts
1cup sugar
40%of a cup water


  • Grind the cashewnut into a fine powder and set aside
  • Mix the sugar and water and set on medium fame to form single-string consistency.
  • Once done, take off the flame and mix the cashewnut thoroughly to remove any lumps
  • Set aside for 15 minutes
  • Gease a plate with some ghee and spread the mix.
  • Set aside for 30 mins, and then cut into the diamond shapes.

This sweet is light, and very healthy too!
