Delicious, smooth, and melt-in-mouth textured kaju badam katli is an ideal sweet dish prepared during the special occasions and festivals such as Diwali.

This kaju badam katli is very much similar to the famous Indian sweet kaju katli. The main difference between both the recipes is that Kaju katli is made only with powdered cashews and sugar syrup whereas, in this recipe, powdered almonds are used along with the cashews and sugar syrup.

For this recipe, one-string consistency sugar syrup is to be made to get soft, moist, and mouth-melting kaju badam katli.

Suggestion


1. Grind the cashew at intervals. Don’t grind them continuously. Continuously grinding may release the oil from the cashew and you do not get the fine dry cashew powder.

2. Sugar syrup plays important role in this recipe. Sugar syrup must have one string consistency or it will spoil the texture of burfi.

3. You can apply silver vark on Kaju badam katli before cutting.
