Kaju katali recipe steps
Take some fresh cashews nuts. Here, you can also increase the quantity to make extra. Grind the cashew nuts in a powder. But not flour like consistency. We need a little bit of coarse texture. Seive the cahsew powder to remove large chunks.
Now in a pan. Add half bowl sugar(use the same bowl). Add 4 to 5 tbsp water. Mix well. Now, cook the sugar on medium to high flame. We need only sticky syrup. It takes 5 to 6 minutes. That is why we use a little bit water. If you use more water in syrup, then it takes more time to cook.
Then add cahsew powder. Mix well and cook it for 3 to 4 minutes. Here, the consistency of the mixture has to be flowing, and it should be combined. But not too firm. Take some mixture and make a ball. If it does not sticks to your fingure and holds the shape. It is ready.
Now, pour the mixture over a greased surface. Knead it and allow it to cool down a bit.
When it looks like a dough, take a plastic sheet and grease it with some ghee. Roll the dough.
Garnish it with some silver vark. Cut it into pieces. Allow it to cool down completely. Kaju katali is ready to serve.
