Kaju Katli

Cashew squares

This is a favorite among many kids and adults alike. A semi sweet dessert, unlike many of the Indian desserts. This one can be made ahead of time. This recipe is a easy variation from the regular recipe. Kids love calling it an "Indian diamond sweet". 

Recipe 1

  • 3 cups Ricotta Cheese
  • 11/2 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Carnation Milk Powder
  • 1/2 to 3/4 th cup Cashews , ground

Mix all the above ingredients and cook on a slow flame for 1 to 11/2 hours, stirring frequently. Cook till a thick consistency. Spread on a clean greased counter or board. Roll out to an 1/8th inch thick and cut into diamond shapes. Decorate with a whole cashew in the middle of each diamond. 

Recipe 2 

1 cup Kaju / Cashew powder 
3/4 cup sugar 
1 tsp ghee
Vanilla/rose essence (optional)
Silver foil (chandi varkh)

Blend the cashew powder and sugar on low in a blender. 
Heat 1 tsp ghee in a heavy bottomed pan add the cashew powder and sugar mixture. Stir until it starts bubbling. Cook stirring continuously until it thickens into a soft mass. Lower the flame and add the vanilla/rose essence and mix well. Turn off the heat. Empty on the greased back of a big plate or on clean counter top. Immediately roll it out about 1/4th inch thickness with a greased rolling pin....immediately! Let it cool completely and then mark & cut into diamonds. Last, apply silver foil on it with care.
