Diwali Treats- Cashew kathli

WISH U ALL A VERY HAPPY DIWALI!!!!!


This year for diwali, I made murukkus and cashew kathli. U can find the recipe of murukku here. This cashew kathli recipe is very easy to make and believe it, it is made without ghee. U can just make this within half an hour and u will surely love it. Love to share it with u all. This will go in as my entry for JFS:Diwali event hosted by Vee of Past,Present and Me

Ingredients
cashews- 500 gms
sugar- 250 gms
water-1/2 cup
silver warq(optional)

Method

Dry roast the cashews slightly for one minute in a pan. The cashews should not change in colour. When you touch the cashews after frying ,it should just be warm. Grind it immediately to a fine powder in a blender.(If we grind the cashews without frying slightly, it will not become a fine powder. ) Heat water and sugar in a non stick pan till one string consistency. It may take 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the flame and add the cashew powder to the sugar syrup. Stir it till it becomes thick and almost in a dough consistency. If u take out a pich of dough and roll it with ur fingers , it should not be sticky like the halwa. Remove from fire and allow it to cool for a minute. When it is slightly warm knead it like a chappathi dough.
Roll out into a big square , 1/4" thick in a greased platform. Apply silver warq and cut into diamonds.

Hi Prema. Tried your recipe of kaju kathli and it turned out well.tasted just like the original kathli. Only prob was that it became little hard not as soft as the store bought ones. May be I kept it for a longer time aft mixing the powder with the syrup. I added little milk powder too.Thanks for the recipe.
