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.
- 1/2 tin condensed or sweetened milk
- 1/2 cup almond meal or flour
- 1 tbsp ghee pr butter
- 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
- slivers of almond for garnish
- Aluminium foil or parchment paper for rolling
- butter/ghee for greasing
- In a non-stick pan, heat the ghee. Mix sweetened milk, almond flour and cardomom powder.
- On a low flame continue stirring till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan and comes together as a single lump. Switch off the heat.
- Grease two sheets of aluminium foil or parchment paper.
- Spread the cooked lump on one of the greased sheets and then placing the other greased sheet on top of it, roll into a 1/4-1/2 inch sheet.
- Allow it to dry a bit. Then using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut diamond shaped or square pieces. You can also use cookie cutter of desired shape to cut out the barfi
- Badam katli is ready to be relished.
