Kaju Katli - The most delicious sweet with cashews

Whenever I go to a sweet shop, the first sweet that I will search for is Kaju katli - Cashew sweet. This is one of the richest sweet. You know why I call it rich...yes both its flavour and its cost is high when compared to other sweets. Yet, the one sweet that makes me glutton is this Kaju katli. Though it is high is calories, you can consume it occasionally, just to treat yourself for your great achievements. Till yesterday, I used to think that this is one big difficult sweet to prepare. But now, I completely changed my opinion after making a trial at my new kitchen. It took only about 15mts to prepare this sweet and of course it was scrumptious. When I was browsing my old cook I came across this easy recipe for making Kaju katli - the sweet with cashew! Here I am sharing the kaju katli recipe with you.


1 cup of cashew

1 1/2 cup of sugar

2 tsp of milk

3/4 cup of water

A pinch of cardamom powder

1 tbsp of Ghee/melted Butter


In a heavy pan, add the water and sugar and mix it well to make the syrup. Add milk to it when the syrup comes to a boil.

Meanwhile, grind the cashews in a mixer so that it becomes evenly powdered. Do this step carefully as while grinding it may form lumps.

Add this powdered cashew to the sugar syrup little by little and stir continuously so that we can avoid lumps getting formed.

Cook in Sim flame till the mixture becomes semi-solid and comes without sticking to the vessel.

At this time add ghee and cardamom powder and mix well and immediately switch off the stove.

Pour this mixture on a plate covered with aluminium foil and allow it to cool.

Cut it into diamond shape or your favourite shape and store it in an air tight container.
I couldn't wait to taste them, so I cut them while they were hot, which made me end up with a kind of irregular shaped wait till it cools down to get better shape.

Note: Kaju Katli is a very famous sweet in the North India and you can make this for any of your parties and impress your guest with something rich and be proud!

That is one amazing mithai that is simply hogged by sindhis(excluding me )
The procedure i follow is exactly same,except that i use 250 gms cashews :200 gm sugar ratio with 1 cup of water,and i also add few drops of white rose esence to give it bit of aroma and rosy flavor.But somehow it comes out bit dry and not as moist and soft as those in sweet shops
I m gonna try this variation too and will surely let u know how it turns out to be
