Diwali Special-Kaju Katli Step by Step Recipe

Hi

For the 2nd week of Blogging Marathon I decided to go with the theme"Seven days of Indian festival food". As Diwali is just round the corner I thought I will go in For Diwali special!!!!!For day 1 it is the ever in demand Kaju Katli

INGREDIENTS

Cashew 2 cups

Sugar 3/4 cup

Ghee 1 tsp

PREPARATION
Measure cashew and sugar and keep it aside
Dry roast the nuts in a very low flame taking care not to discolour the nuts. Switch off the stove and let it cool in the Pan itself.

When it has cooled down, transfer this to a mixer and run the mixer at speed 1 in pulses. Do not run for long interval continuously as it tends to become a paste

Spread it on a plate and keep it aside.

In a heavy bottomed Pan /Kadai add the sugar with very little water(just about 2tbsp)
Cook it low flame till it reaches 1 string consistency(when little syrup is taken between thumb and first finger and stretched one string is formed)

Remove from fire and pour this little by little to the cashew powder and mix well. It forms a mass(chapathi like)

Now transfer this to a flat surface on which a little ghee is applied. Spread immediately with a chapathi roller(ghee should be applied to this too)
You can spread this in between two thick greased plastic sheets too

Cut into diamonds or squares while it is still warm
Try this and you will make this repeatedly!!!!!(pretty easy to make)Watch the calories though:-)
