Kaju katli is popular in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and its origin is traced to the Mughal era, when Jahangir ruled. Kaju refers to cashew nuts and katli means thin slices. The sweet is Indian fudge, which is popular in weddings and festivals like Deepavali. In many homes, Kaju katli accompany wedding invitation cards, as a positive vibe. It is also served with kheer and halwa, in a wedding platter.
The sweet usually has a diamond shape, wrapped in silver foil, which makes it visually appealing.
Kaju katli is made with cashew nuts soaked overnight. Unlike Kaju barfi, Kaju katli does not have milk as its ingredient. Like other sweets, Kaju katli is also cooked in heavy bottomed vessel, till it thickens and rolls out without being sticky.
Choosing ingredients carefully is important while making kaju katli. Premium cashew which is unsalted and never stale, is used for making the sweet. Cashews must be used in room temperature. If refrigerated, the cashew must be roasted slightly till it reaches room temperature not more. Roasting cashews also frees them from toxins.
Take care not to release oil from the cashew nuts, lest the sweet would lose taste. Cashew powder must be fine and sieve it so that it is never coarse or lumpy either.
