Kaju Katli

Kaju Katli


1 cup cashews, raw and unsalted
4 cardamom pods, seeds removed and crushed
1 pinch salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water


Grind the cashews into as fine a powder as you can. Mix cardamom powder, salt, and cashews together. Heat water and sugar in a pot until boiling. Add cashews and stir well with a rubber spatula. Cook for abut 5 minutes until the mixture thickens. You can tell it’s ready when it a dribble of it on a cool plate forms a soft ball.

Pour out the mixture onto lightly oiled aluminum foil. Let the mixture cool and then knead until glassy. Then roll out to 1/4″ thick and slice into diamonds. Store in an airtight container in layers separated by parchment paper. Makes 20-30 Diamonds
