How to make Kaju Katli
Tips to make the best Kaju katli:
1.Cashew: Powder the cashews in a mixer grinder as fine as possible, but without making it lumpy. Do not run the mixer at one continuous stretch, but run for a few seconds multiple times. This gives you the perfect cashew powder.
2.Powder: Running the mixer for a longer time than required will make the powder pasty and lumpy because the cashews release oils.
3. Do not overcook the kaju katli because it will crack and become powdery after cooling. Turn off the flame as soon as the Kaju is cooked.
4. Kneading the mixture is the key here – kneading it will mix all the ingredients well and give you the right texture.
5. Pour the cooked mixture on a plate/parchment paper that is greased well with ghee/ clarified butter or butter so that it doesn’t stick to the plate.
6.Before adding the cashew powder, ensure that the sugar is completely dissolved and the sugar syrup has reached one string consistency.
1. How long can I store ?
You can store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
2. How to serve?
You can serve the Kaju barfi at room temperature or slightly cooled. You can use edible silver foil if you prefer to.
3. How thick should the be?
I have cut it at ¼th inch thickness since its ideal, but you can make it thicker if you prefer.
4. How do I know that the Kaju barfi is cooked?
Take a small amount of the mixture on your greased palm and roll it into a ball. If the ball is smooth and non-sticky, it is done. If you are unable to roll it into a ball, you have to let it cook a bit more till you get a dry ball.
5. How to get the sugar syrup to be the right consistency?
Follow my Kaju katli recipe closely and use the same amount of water and sugar to get a perfect consistency.
