ROSE KAJU KATLI - ROSE FLAVOURED CASHEW SWEET

ROSE KAJU KATLI - ROSE FLAVOURED CASHEW SWEET

Kaju katli is a popular Indian sweet made using cashew and sugar as main ingredient. It is a simple and yet delicious sweet. Generally it is in diamond shape and a favorite sweet of most Indian people.
My daughter is not a sweet lover. She never eats the sweet items except this kaju katli.
For the last few days after seeing a kaju katli photo in internet, she keeps on asking me this sweet. She doesn’t know the name and all, so she will ask like, amma I want that diamond shape sweet. Nowadays she is learning the shapes, so this diamond shape impressed her very much J
It was a real surprise for me as she finished 2 full pieces at a go. J
In general the kaju katli will be in creamy white and flavored with cardamom. But here I just give little rose flavor and pink color to the sweet as pink is my dear daughter’s favorite. One important point is this recipe doesn't have ghee.
So definitely do  try this recipe and please let me know how it turns out to you.

METHOD:
First grind the cashew in to a fine powder. Don’t over grind as it may release oil from the cashews. So grind it in one stretch. Keep it aside.

Line a plate /tray with a parchment paper or grease the tray with ghee.
In a heavy bottomed pan add the water and sugar.

Once the sugar dissolved completely add the rose essence and rose color and mix well. Let it boil for 5 to 10 minutes.


Once it reaches single thread consistency add the cashew powder and mix well.
Stir continuously till it becomes thick. The flame should be lower medium to avoid the burning in bottom.

After around 5 to 10 minutes the mix will comes like a whole mass.
If you take a small amount of the mixture with wet fingers you can able to make a smooth ball without sticking. It is the right stage to remove the cashew mixture from fire.
Pour the mixture on the greased plate/paper lined tray and knead for few minutes.

Than flatten it using a rolling pin for about ½ inch dense.
For smooth top you can put a parchment paper on the top also.

Once it cooled down a little bit, cut into diamond shaped pieces and remove after cooled down completely.

Store in air tight box and stays well for maximum 1 week.

NOTES:
  • If you don’t want the rose flavor you can add ½ tsp of cardamom powder instead of rose color and essence.
  • The sugar syrup consistency is very important.
  • After adding the cashew powder to the sugar syrup stir continuously to avoid the lumps.
  • If your mixture becomes dry, add a table spoon of milk and knead well. Remember if you add milk then the shelf life of the katli will be reduced.
  • I used raspberry colour powder. if you have liquid color you can use.
  • You can sieve the cashew powder once before adding into the sugar syrup to get very smooth powder.
