Kaju Katli | How to make Kaju Katli

A melt in mouth kind and super addictive cashew nut fudge aka Kaju Katli is a favourite Indian sweet made during festivals.

Kaju Katli is everyone’s favourite at home, and whenever someone visits from India there must be at least two kilograms of it in the baggage. Girls would literally cry if by any chance someone forgets to bring it.

So as this is the only favourite sweets of my daughters I have been trying to make it at home since the last year. I tried a couple of recipes but I wasn’t satisfied with the results. Sometimes it was chewy or sticky or sometimes too dry.

I almost gave up on it until one day I saw this FB Youtube video shared by Yaman. I followed this recipe to the T and let me tell you the results were amazing.

The katlis came out so perfect, soft melt in mouth kind and my girls went crazy for the homemade ones. They finished the whole batch in just a few hours, that much addictive they were.

Many thanks to Yaman for sharing this recipe. If you guys are looking for a perfect kaju katli recipe, I can totally vouch for it. Do try it and you will know the difference.
