Badam Katli/Almond Fudge

The festival of Diwali could not be celebrated without the preparation of the sweet – burfi or katli. Kaju Katli or Cashewnut fudge is considered to be an expensive sweet but still is quite common as people don’t hesitate. So I thought of making something different than regular. Katli means a thin square or diamond shape piece of sweet.
