  • Serving – 12 katlis
  • Course – Dessert
  • Cuisine – Indian
  • Time to make – 30 minutes


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/6 cup water
  • 2 tsp. ghee (unclarified butter) 


  • Powder the 1 cup cashew in a grinder. Make sure to pulse them for 5 second each time and check. Do not pulse them continuously as they leave oil and the powder will become a paste.
  • In a non stick pan on low heat, add 1/3 cup sugar and 1/6 cup water. Let the sugar dissolve completely and when the mixture begins to boil rapidly, add the powdered cashew. No need to check for 1 string consistency. Along with the kaju, add 2 tsp ghee as well. 
  • Keep stirring the mixture continuously till mixture thickens and starts to come together and starts leaving the sides of pan. It takes around 3-4 minutes. 
  • Remove the mixture on a butter paper and let it rest for 3-4 minutes till it becomes manageable to knead. 
  • Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes till it becomes a smooth ball. If the mixture sticks to your hand, grease the hands with some ghee. 
  • Take another butter paper on top of the dough and roll it to a thickness of 1/4 inch. 
  • Let it cool down and then cut it in diamond shape using a sharp knife. 
  • Serve immediately or store it in a air tight container. 


  • Seive the kaju mixture before adding to sugar to get a smooth kaju katli. I did not seived it and hence in the pictures, you can see small kaju particles. 
  • No need to check for string consistency. 
  • Knead the dough when it’s warm. If it cools down, then it becomes hard to knead and roll.
